Beyern is a district of the town of Falkenberg / Elster in the Elbe-Elster district in southern Brandenburg and is located about six kilometers northwest of the city center on the Węgliniec – Roßlau railway .
The oldest known mention of Beyern comes from the year 1419 (earlier spellings: 1419 Beygn, 1423 Beygern, 1495 Beiern ).
Until 1815 the village of Beyern was the southeasternmost place of the office of Annaburg . As early as the 16th century, the place had its own pastor. In 1550 there were 25 possessed men in Beyern , including 19 tie-ins who were directly subordinate to the Lochau office . At that time (Germanic / pagan) Landgeding, Landgauding (assembly / court) were held in Beyern . The venue was presumably in the holy place of today's church, where a "proud" linden or oak stood, surrounded by further linden or oak.
On August 31, 1580, in Freiberg, the loan was made over the gold soap Sanct Moises . The soaps, which had a width of 500 laughs and a length of 1000 laughs, were already on a sand mountain on the Beyerian border in the area of the neighboring office of Schlieben . The five trades included the city of Freiberg and the miner Martin Planer .
Deserts Presitz and Richental
The Wüstungen Presitz (former spelling: Prestewitz, Presicz, Bresewitz ) & Reichenthal (former spelling: Richental ) also belonged to Beyern. Presumably these places on the border area of the Mark Brandenburg became desolate, while Ludwig the Elder Margrave of the Mark Brandenburg (1323-1351) was.

Culture and sights
Club life and regular events
Traditionally, the village festival took place every year in July on the local sports field, the design and implementation of which was taken care of by the sports club "Frieden" Beyern eV and the district's culture and leisure club . Other local associations include the volunteer fire brigade , which organizes the Easter fire on Easter Sunday and the mulled wine evening on the last Saturday before Christmas, and the senior citizens' club.
In 2005 Beyern was the winner in the district competition “Our village has a future”.
The village church of Beyern , which dates from the first half of the 13th century, is on the list of monuments of the state of Brandenburg. The church was originally built from lawn iron stone, of which only the western parts of the wall have survived. In 1861 an extensive renovation took place, whereby brick was used.
A rectory built in 1738 is the oldest house in the district and is also a listed building.
