In 1950, the Korean War broke out. US President Harry S. Truman A road as a flagship
What the inventors of the Romantic Road had in mind would be called active image cultivation today. When the holiday route between Würzburg and Füssen was officially brought into being in 1950, it was intended to be the flagship of a friendly Germany, a Germany far away from the Hitler terror and the piles of rubble: a route rich in culture and history, with Medieval towns, half-timbered buildings, palaces, castles, gentle hilly landscapes and vineyards, one after another, like pearls on a string. A trip through a country that is open, friendly and closely linked with the history of Europe.
