The beautiful Russbachtal was captured by the medieval clearing shaft only in the 13th and 14th century. The legend explains the place name with the earlier that the poachers in the local brook washed the soot from their faces. The single-nave hall church to the Holy Cross (1856-1862) with a high altar (17 century) stands out for its striking tower.

Author’s recommendation

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

Rußbach am Pass Gschütt: Das schöne Rußbachtal wurde von der mittelalterlichen Rodungswelle erst im 13. Und 14. Jh. erfasst. Die Legende erklärt den Ortsnamen damit, dass sich früher die Wilderer im dortigen Bach den Ruß vom Gesicht gewaschen haben. Die einschiffige Saalkirche Zum Hl. Kreuz (1856-1863) mit einem Hochaltar (17. Jh.) fällt durch ihren markanten Turm auf. Der Lehrpfad Schneckenwand führt zur bekanntesten Fundstelle von Versteinerungen aus der Kreidezeit. Der Rußbacher Dorfbrunnen wurde ganz aus solchen Fossilien gebaut.
