Postmilitary pillars made in former times for a direction instruction, like here the Wurzener distance pillar from the year 1724. It was the Elector Friedrich August I., who built in the year 1721 postmark pillars in the area of course axes. Wurzen had three of these pillars back then. Unfortunately, these were removed and destroyed at the end of the 19th century. The reconstructed post office pillar of Wurzen revives the memory of a time without a navigation system and is now an eye-catcher in the city center.
