Pforzheim Things to Do: 23 reviews and 70 photos
The "Rassler" were 19th century commuters who lived in the outlying villages and came into Pforzheim every day to work in the jewelry factories. Originally they walked in every day, often long distances, but those who could afford it later came in by train after the railroads were built.
This group of statues was made by the sculptor Fritz Theilmann (1902-1991) and was unveiled in 1982.
Rassler is now also the name of a football (soccer) club in Pforzheim.
