Looking for a specific map for touring

About ten years ago, we bought a map of Germany for a trip.

It had a unique (and helpful) feature in that the name of towns with tourist interest was printed in a rectangle not related, as I recall, to the size of the town, but instead its touristic/cultural interest. As I recall too, the rectangles differed in color, so that (for example) Dinkelsbuhl might have been a small green rectangle while Wurzburg might have been a larger blue rectangle.

I subsequently lost the map, and wish I could locate a replacement. Our local bookstores don't carry such (it's not a Michelin), and even a Rand McNally outlet store in Maine didn't have it.

Does anyone know the publisher of the map described above?

Michelin does this in their guidebooks. I stopped using paper maps years ago, sorry.

I think it might be American Map Corporation, I'm looking at a map that looks like you describe.

Can't tell, aramis and elberko.
I tried to Google your suggestion, but none of the hits showed a picture of the map so that I could identify if it were the same map. Those colored rectangles would be the key.
