Legend holds the name Krumlov is derived from the German "Krumme Aue", which may be translated as "crooked meadow". "Český" simply means Czech, or Bohemian, which is actually one and the same, as opposed to Moravian or Silesian.

Český Krumlov Castle was built in the 13th century by the Lords of Krumlov. The last Krumlov died in 1302 without leaving an heir. The castle and the surrounding area became the property of the Rosenbergs, who occupied the castle for 300 years.
