The creators of this itinerary, when they met in Augsburg, wanted to recreate Germany as a tourist destination after the misfortunes caused by Hitler's terror. Their intention was for all foreign tourists to have a positive image of the country. With the beautiful medieval cities along the Romantic Route, it was possible to show a joyful, multifaceted nation immersed in the history of the European Union.

A triad of nature, culture and hospitality has been the hallmark of Romantische Strasse since 1950. It is the best known and most popular German tourist route in the country. The name Romantische Straße expresses what many domestic and foreign visitors feel when visiting medieval towns or the dream castle Neuschwanstein: fascination and a return to ancient times.

The Romantic Route project in Rio Grande do Sul had as its initial idea the formation of a tourist route with predominantly German colonized cities. Inspired by Romantische Straße, in 2007 a partnership/cooperation agreement was signed between the two routes, the Brazilian and the German, with a commitment to promote the integration of the two tourist routes, considering the strong influence of German colonization in the state and in the municipalities that make up the Romantic Route. As a result of this partnership, several cultural exchanges are carried out between the two countries.
