Mülbitz is a district of the Saxon town of Großenhain in the district of Meißen .


The district is located about 2 kilometers south of the Großenhain old town, east of the Hopfenbach. Mülbitz is connected to Grossenhain in the north and Zschauitz in the south via the S 81 state road . To the west of the village is Zschieschen and to the east of the Kupferberg and Weßnitz . The place arose on biotite paragneiss south (left) of the Röder and is south of the Röderneugraben. Mülbitz was originally referred to in the 19th century as an extended cul-de-sac-like hamlet with a block and striped corridor and a size of 296 hectares. At Mülbitz, the Hohe Straße , an important medieval trading route that connected the Osterland with the Upper Lusatia , crossed the Hopfenbach .


The place Mülbitz was first mentioned in 1185 in the personal name Sifridus de Milbuz .

The basis for the place name is set as the Old Sorbian basic form Milobuz, the Slavic two-part full name Milobud, that is, the settlement of a Milobud is named. The town hall was settled much earlier. There are references to graves from the Late Bronze Age and the Earlier Iron Age . In the first half of the 19th century, fire graves came to light south of the town of Lausitz . The Elder Iron Age graves northeast of the place were discovered in 1934.

Mülbitz was originally a margrave fief . The two allodes mentioned in 1350 and the village were often given to Großenhain citizens. On December 19, 1478, the village became the inheritance and city of Hayn. In 1662 it went to the Naundorf manor.

In 1668 Christian Brettschneider was a judge and Hans Seidel, Georg Schickedanz and Caspar Herrmann Schöppen.

Margrave Wilhelm enfeoffed Margarethe, wife of Johann Tylo, citizen, with an allod in 1385. 1406 Mülbitz pays Country Pray to Hain and belongs to Großenhainer care . On May 4, 1436 Thomas Stolze received the Vorwerg, which was the old part. On December 1st, 1437, Jacoff Czschymann got the small Vorwerg, which he bought from Martin Schybe. On April 26, 1444, Caspar Czemaw received the small Vorwerk von Mülbitz, as Caspar Gleitsmann seelig held it, but Barbara, whose married wife was harmless to the body . In 1445 the citizens gave 6 guilders out of the 60 guilders, as the Mülbitz farm was handed over. The elector renounces the city and is free from 4 guilders, which the citizens had to give annually because of the farm. Before 1450, Hans von Betzschwitz owned the small Vorwerk. Michel Förster, citizen of Grossenhain, bought a vineyard from Betzschwitzen in 1458, of which each owner is supposed to give 4 Kapphähne to the Gleitamt Hain .

In 1547 the pastors of Köllen near Meißen and Zscheila received grain from Mülbitz. In 1547 Mülbitz was administered by the Hain Office, also in 1764, 1816 and 1843. In 1856 Mülbitz was administered by the Grossenhain Court Office and from 1875 by the Grossenhain Office . From 1824 to 1872 there was a chauffeur money collection point in Mülbitz. The Saxon rural community order of 1838 gave Mülbitz independence as a rural community.

Restaurant to the villa, around 1900

In 1840 the place had 6 farms, 6 garden foods including 1 bar with fields and meadows, 5 houses and a large, wealthy water mill, the hammer mill. The hammer mill is so named because a copper hammer stood there 150 years ago. The property in Kupferberg belonged to the Hammermühle.

The school was until 1840 a change in school along with Zschieschen , the children went to school Großenhain. From 1886 the town of Mülbitz had its own school building, and later the children finally went to school in Großenhain. Mülbitz was incorporated into Grossenhain on April 1, 1913 as the first congregation. There was an important steam hammer mill in the village, the Leichsenring sheet metal coil factory and the Jungfer & Co. tannery. The hammer mill and the Michaelisheim were located there, a place of relaxation and education. The cemetery and the rifle house also belonged to the former suburb of Mülbitz. Saxons came after the Second World War in the Soviet zone of occupation and later the GDR . The historically grown affiliation to Großenhain was retained even after the territorial reform of 1952 , which assigned Mülbitz to the Grossenhain district in the Dresden district.

After the German reunification , Mülbitz came to the re-established Free State of Saxony. The following regional reforms in Saxony assigned Mülbitz to the district of Riesa-Großenhain in 1994 and to the district of Meißen in 2008 .
