(Op 5 juli 1933 kondigde Adolf Hitler tijdens zijn eerste speech als Rijkskanselier op de Berlijnse Auto show in 1933 grootse plannen aan. Onder leiding van Fritz Todt moest er ongeveer 6.900 kilometer Autobahn komen. Een Autobahn is een Duitse term voor autosnelweg die in 1929 werd geïntroduceerd door hoogleraar Robert Otzen. De in 1924 geopende eerste autosnelweg ter wereld, tussen Milaan en Varese in Italië, stond daarbij als voorbeeld. Op 19 mei 1935 opent Hitler tussen Frankfurt en Darmstadt de eerste echte Autobahn in Duitsland. Dit betreft onder meer de Linksrheinische en de Rechtsrheinische autobahn.)
