German term or phrase: Bächle
Bächle in den Altstadtgassen (something to be found in Freiburg apparently). Gerberau and Fischerau are also mentioned as things worth seeing. Are these districts?

Explanation:
This is as the answer already stated diminutive of "Bach".
Gerberau and Fischerau are streetnames in Freiburg.
Gerber coming from "gerben - to tan" (see URL it is some brewing companies website located there) and Fischer is the fisherman.

brook, creek


Explanation:
also: run, rill (poet.)
Little stream does not get the gist of it. I would use brook.
"Baeche von Traenen=streams of tears"
But: "der Bach muendet in den Fluss" =the brook flows into the river
