The first written document mentioning the location comes from 1298. Rumburk was the scene of the Rumburk rebellion in May 1918. Until 1918, Rumburg was part of the Austrian monarchy (Austria side after the compromise of 1867), in the district of the same name, one of the 94 Bezirkshauptmannschaften in Bohemia.
In 1938, it was occupied by the Nazi army as one of the municipalities in Sudetenland. The German-speaking population was expelled in 1945 (see the Beneš decrees) and replaced by Czech settlers, using the adapted name Rumburk.
Following a number of years of depression after the fall of communism, the region is now poised to become an industrial center again. Rumburk's economy receives a boost thanks to the presence of automotive industry within its borders.
Rumburk has historical centre with many historical sights, such as an old monastery.
