If the Romantik Road is included on any list of scenic routes it would cast doubt on all the routes being scenic IMO

Romantik Road, creation of the German Tourist Office in 60s or so - truck-filled two lane road with some nice, dreamy nice towns along it - but to me very unromatic and un-scenic.

I think I would call about 20% of those 'scenic'. No, haven't been to all of them, but I'd like to add another one 'Via Sacra' (In Saxony, leading into Czech Rep./Poland)

Oops, there is also a Saxon Wine Road. Btw, will drive the Saxon Silver Mines Road tomorrow ;-)

I should have set the subject as "German Tourist Routes"
That would be have been more accurate

Yes as even though some are not scenic, all can be delightful to drive...even though largely a creation of the German Tourist authorities to hype tourism your list is good to post.

the Route of Industrial Heritage for instance would attract me.

thanks for posting!
