Waldbronn is a municipality in the district of Karlsruhe, in Baden-Württemberg, Germany. It is situated in the northern Black Forest, 11 km southeast of Karlsruhe.



Waldbronn was founded in 1972 as a result of a municipal restructuring, when the communities Busenbach and Reichenbach merged. A year earlier the community of Etzenrot had been merged with Reichenbach already.

The three communities are first mentioned in historic documents in 1292.

In January 1994 Waldbronn was awarded the official status of "Ort mit Heilquellen-Kurbetrieb", indicating the medicinal benefits of its hot wells.


Reichenbach is connected to the city of Karlsruhe by the S11 branch of the Albtalbahn, an electric railway that forms part of the Karlsruhe Stadtbahn.
