Until the church is planted

A large part of the municipality belonged to the Hohenstein Propstei, which first belonged to the land and court rule of the Reichenbach Monastery and was purchased by the Waldsassen Monastery in 1442 . Mähring became the center of a judge's office in the Stiftland. In the freedom letter of 1566 the place was already referred to as a stain (market). The political municipality was established in 1818.

The Mähring uranium mining project, which was operated as part of the Cold War, was discontinued in 1982.


On May 1, 1978, the previously independent communities of Dippersreuth, Griesbach and Großkonreuth (from January 9, 1952, previously officially Poppenreuth ) were incorporated.

Culture and sights


  • Mineral Museum - Ferdinand Wagner
  • Museum room Mähring - Lohäuser in the old town hall Mähring


St. Anna Memorial Church with a lookout tower
  • St. Anna Memorial Church on the Pfaffenbühl.
The chapel, originally consecrated in 1953, was expanded in 1967 and 1987. It is reminiscent of the Egerland pilgrimage church of the same name in the Bohemian Plan- Weseritz in what was then the Sudetenland, 13 kilometers away . The 17 meter high observation tower added to the side of the building in 1973. Especially in the times of the Cold War and the Iron Curtain , it served the expellees as a vantage point for a “look into their old homeland” and a “symbol of vigilance and resistance to the communist East”.

Fire brigades

Voluntary fire brigades exist in Mähring, Griesbach, Großkonreuth, Poppenreuth, Dippersreuth and Redenbach.

The Mähring market is developing more and more into a tourist destination, not least due to the proximity of the spa triangle Marienbad - Franzensbad - Karlsbad , which can be reached via the Mähring / Broumov border crossing . The low mountain range , which invites you to go on long hikes, or the many fishing waters for anglers are also reasons for its increasing popularity.


State road 2167 ends at the border crossing Mähring - Broumov / Promenhof in the Czech Republic in the Mähring district of stairs stone .

Bus routes 2702 and 2704 run by Eska Stiftlandkraftverkehr on weekdays .
