For over two hundred years the village consisted of little more than a hundred buildings, but in the mid-seventeenth century, after the Thirty Years War, became fashionable among the aristocracy and began to expand. The final appearance of Carlsbad received in the late nineteenth century. In the nineteenth century the town began to grow beyond the narrow valley of the river Warm and marched along with the buildings on the slopes of the Erzgebirge mountains.
