The first written mention about Frymburk is from 1277. Originally belonged to Lords of Krumlov and after 1302 to Rosenbergs. It is town from 1379. The town was originally a market village from the late 13th century on the trade route from upper Austria to Bohemia. The Rosenbergs established a toll-road at the bridge across the Vltava River which was already mentioned in 1305. Declared a town in 1379. In 1492 Peter Wok von Rosenberg granted the town certain rights which freed the citizentry from serfdom. Right to brew beer granted by Wilhelm von Rosenberg Emperor Franz II confirmed Frymburk's privilege which had been granted by Emperor Josef II on 28 April 1789, allowing the town a weekly Tuesday market as well as a Christmas market (Jarmark) on St. Ann's day. Part of the town was flooded during the construction of Lake Lipno.
