Flurlingen was first mentioned in a document in 876. In August 876 the abbot of the Rheinau monastery handed over the place Flurlingen to the Klettgau count Gozbert, who later gave his property in Laufen, Mörlen and Flurlingen back to the monastery in 892. In the 10th century, the whole of the Mark, including the parish church in Laufen, came to the Bishop of Constance , who established a manor in Flurlingen with lower jurisdiction over "inheritance and ownership" and the imposition of fines of up to nine shillings. This "Uhwieser Amt" existed until 1798. The bailiwick with central jurisdiction was connected to Laufen Castle and with this in 1544 it came to Zurich . The high court in Flurlingen has always belonged to the County of Kyburg and with it passed to Zurich in 1424 and 1452 respectively.

In the Helvetic Republic , Flurlingen formed its own municipality , and under the mediation constitution, Flurlingen, Dachsen and Uhwiesen were independent communities. With the restoration in 1814, all three places were united. Under the cantonal constitution of 1831, Dachsen broke away, so that only Uhwiesen and Flurlingen together formed a political municipality. In 1841 Flurlingen left this association and became an independent municipality again.


The community is connected to the right bank of the Rhine by two Rhine bridges. Since 1860 by a road bridge to Schaffhausen , since 1921 by a footbridge to Neuhausen . In addition, the A4 Rhine bridge and the Flurlinger tunnel are on the municipal area.
