History History

Origin of the Name :
1262 - Rosenberch
1369 - Rosenberg
1405 - Rosemberg
1420 - Rozmberg
1654 - Rožumbergk
1841 - Rosenberg, Rožmberk

The town of Rožmberk was founded in the mid 13th century on the trade route which led from Český Krumlov across the border pass to Linz and further south. It is associated with the renowned noble clan of the Rosenbergs, who settled the town and area then brought the region prosperity, culturally and economically. The statute granted to the town attests to this, as the Rožmberks also were the lords of Český Krumlov and all its holdings. In 1620 their local domain was accrued by the French aristocrats the Buquoys, who continued the Rosenberg's tradition of cultural and economic prosperity.
