The city was founded around 1275 by the Bohemian King Přemysl Otakar II as a royal city . It was given the German name Nuenburch and was settled with German colonists . During the 14th century, the number of Czech citizens gradually increased. At the time of the Hussite revolution, the city was largely inhabited by Czechs. From 1425 it was under the control of the Taborites , in 1436 King Sigismund confirmed its privileges. Both after the class uprising of 1547 and the battle of the White Mountain in 1619, the city was subjected to repression, as large parts of the population professed Protestantism. Those who refused to become Catholics had to emigrate in 1628.

During the Thirty Years' War the city was conquered and destroyed by Saxon troops in 1631 and 1634, and later also by the Swedes. It was not until the beginning of the 18th century that there was an economic upswing. From the middle of the 19th century, Nymburk was a center of the Czech National Revival .
