Albrechtice v Jizerských horách is located in the valley between the Špičák and Mariánská hills.

The village was founded by the Des Fours family in around 1670. Its name is derived from the inheritor of the Smržovka manor - Count Albrecht Maxmilian Anton. In around 1700 Mariánská Hora was set up as a daughter village of Albrechtice. According to legend, it was named after a statuette of the Virgin Mary which was found when the first farmstead was being built.

In the 19th century glassmaking flourished in the village and its surroundings. Glass foundries supplied glass for cutting shops in Albrechtice and Mariánská Hora. Thanks to its reputation and number of best specialized cutters, Albrechtice ranked among major cutting shops in the region of Jablonec at the end of the 19th century.

In 1705 Mariánskohorské boudy was built, which is a popular destination of hikers nowadays. Another sight is a robust mausoleum with a dome, which was built in the graveyard in Albrechtice by a son of Johann Schowanek, a businessman and the founder of a factory making wooden beads and toys.

Since 1975 downhill skiing has developed in the village. A new downhill course was built, including ski lifts, and in 1980 a race of the Women's European Cup was organized on Špičák.
