History[edit]

Hazlov was first mentioned in 1224 as a property of the noble house of Hazlov (Haslau). Bedřich of Hazlov probably built the castle in the village. Nicholas Jur of Cheb bought Hazlov in 1401. Other owners of the village were: the Landwüst family from 1450, the Kocov family from 1579, the Dětřichov family, the Nostitz family and the Moser family. The last owners from the nobility were the Hemfeld family (until 1945).

Until the end of the 18th century Hazlov was mostly an agricultural village. From the 19th century the textile industry developed in the whole Aš-region, including Hazlov. The first textile factory was opened in 1822.

In 2008 the village had a population of 1,665. The municipality of Hazlov has six districts: Hazlov, Lipná, Polná, Skalka, Táborská and Výhledy.
