The place was first mentioned in 1383 as located at the trading road from Bohemia to the Lausitz. It became part of the possessions of the family of Wartenberg from Děčín, and in 1614 of the Kinsky family. Town rights had been granted in 1570, and in 1596 a militia was founded for defense.
Along with other parts of the former Austrian Empire, Chřibská became part of Czechoslovakia in 1919. From 1938, after the Munich Agreement regarding the Sudetenland, until 1945, Chřibská was part of Varnsdorf district, with the suburbs of Niederkreibitz (Dolní Chřibská), Oberkreibitz (Horní Chřibská) and Schönfeld (Krásné Pole).
Since 10 October 2006 Chřibská is again a town.
Near the neo-gothic town hall of 1872, the explorer Thaddäus Haenke was born in 1761.
