The Flachsbach flowing through the south of Büsbach has its source in the pasture between the villages Büsbach and Breinig. Pottery findings dated 900 AD proved that there had been in a settlement in the surroundings of the rivulet. It finally led to the development of Büsbach.
Rivulet of flax, the translation of the German name Flachsbach can be explained by the handling of flax in the past utilising the rivulets hydropower.
