Deutsche Alpenstrasse would be a good candidate to have here. It's signed all the way with brown signs and it's pretty well known. It also goes over some roads that are not clinchable now so it will be nice to have.

@panda: I've already drafted GTS (Grand Tour of Switzerland) and tried to find out more info about routes from https://www.ferienstrassen.info/. In general, all routes should be signed and I think that most are really signed well, minimum the routes I travel on occasion. There are some routes quite close to my home and they are all with brown signs. There seem to be some exceptions with non-brown signs. I travel the "Route of indulgence" almost daily and this route is NOT signed AFAIK.


I cannot check GSV because it's not available in Germany. That the closest route to my home is not signed makes me struggling. Should I really trust the source and add all routes?

In addition, some routes have short branches (1..2km) to villages next to the main route. Should I also add them?

Don't know what to say...I would maybe add the most known routes, which have already some tradition, first? For Germany it would be Alpenstrasse, Alleenstraße, Romantische Straße, Glasstraße. I would also add branches, and name them after the main location where the branch goes.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marguerite_route <- Danish equivalent to the Grand Tour of Switzerland route, signed with Marguerite flowers (wiki link given as it links to several sources).

When it comes to branches, the Wild Atlantic Way has theoretically tons, but without recent GMSV, I cannot tell how well signed they are. With the absorbed tourist routes still signed, AFAICS, the major branches are covered.

I wanna activate the German tier 5 systems first to minimize trouble with concurrent (tourist) routes when tweaking waypoints et cetera. Afterwards I'll think about it. Reviewing (own) systems is pain in the a** and I need to draft anything parallel. That means, Romania first :) It might take another year...
