Both lines were operated by the Royal Württemberg State Railways Königlich Württembergischen Staats-Eisenbahnen and they received their own platform tracks to the west of the single pforzheim. The station building was built in in the neoclassical style and consisted of a long, single-storey central building with two-story wings at right-angles at each end.
It was destroyed on 23 February during the bombing of Pforzheim. The architect was Helmuth Conradi who had already designed the entrance building of Heidelberg Hauptbahnhofwhich was opened in The defining component is the entrance hall, which has a glass facade opening to the station forecourt that runs from the floor to the eaves.
A very thin canopy marks the main entrance; its cladding with gold-anodised aluminum plates refers to the importance of the watch and jewelry industry for Pforzheim. Inside the hall, strips on the ceiling that continue along the back wall are used for indirect lighting.
The lobby is framed by two granite walls, windowless on the left and with a station clock and a large trapezoidal single pforzheim on the right.
Service rooms open onto the platform. Two annexes with the station restaurant and a waiting room for buses extend beyond the line made by the front of the entrance building.
