Marieney is a district of the municipality Mühlental, formed on January 1, 1994, in the Vogtlandkreis in Saxony . The place is southeast of Oelsnitz / Vogtl. on a connecting road that branches off from Bundesstraße 92 near Unterwürschnitz in the valley of the White Elster and continues to Schilbach and Schöneck / Vogtl. leads.


The first mention of the place is said to have taken place in 1279 with the mention of Luther de Marchenia .

On the corridor of Marieney, which was in the care or later office of Voigtsberg , the construction of a late medieval hammer mill was proven by archaeological excavations, which proves that there was a similar density of iron hammers in the upper Vogtland as in the Pirna area .

On March 9, 1416, Landgrave Friedrich the Younger of Thuringia in Weimar transferred to the parish church of Marieney, which he fought with, a farm in the village where the boy lived (probably an illegal offspring of the landgrave family?).

For many years in the 15th century, the Toss family was the most influential and wealthiest family in town. She made several foundations for the local church and was in contact with the Wettins . The parishes in the surrounding areas also benefited from the generosity of the Toss family.

In 1537 there was a beer war between the knighthood and the towns of the Vogtland over malting, brewing and beer-giving, which also affected the tavern in Marieney along with 23 other knightly inns.
