The people of Bayreuth erected a statue to commemorate their first great patron of tourism in 1705. The Margrave Christian Ernst, former successful commander in the war against the Turks, and today, a larger-than-life-size statue on top of the fountain in front of the New Castle, proved during his lifetime his acumen as far as transport matters were concerned. He ensured that the first mail coach service from Nuremberg to Leipzig in 1648 travelled via Bayreuth. As a crossing of two important trade routes Bayreuth obtained an "imperial post station".
It is operated as an independent economic enterprise. The DERPART-travel agency in the city centre, the theatre box-office, the fairground and the majority of public bill-postings fall within its remit. The office offers a range of services and activities, for example, tours of the historical Margraves sites, or weekends on the trail of famous Bayreuth personalities like Jean Paul or Richard Wagner. As well as providing the standard promotional literature, lists of events, guides for hotels and museums, it also offers an all round service for promoters, visitors and inhabitants.
