Russbach, is a bit sleazy - away from the big tourist streams. A peaceful village surrounded by mountains. At the village walk you will find out why at this place the village arise and from what the people in Russbach once lived and why you can spend a peaceful holiday here.

Author’s recommendation

A visit to the Museum "Fossilienkabinett" at the parish hall is very rewarding.
