The host family Gruber is unbeatable: a family business that runs smoothly! Everyone is welcomed and treated nicely: Anna, Isabella and Roland are absolutely attentive and friendly. Tip: the family almost always has home-baked bread, cakes and tarts, liqueurs made from local alpine herbs, but always guaranteed typical South Tyrolean specialties from the pot and pan of Arnold and Jonas. There are original T-shirts designed by Natascha: she made very fine cuts through the local rock and photos through the microscope, which are then printed on the fabric. Yes, the cell phone reception isn't great there, but Isabella wrote a phone symbol on a rock, which sometimes works. Here in the tips it says that you can't shower there, but that's wrong: just ask Anna, the landlady!
The name Chemnitzer Hütte is historical and correct. As with many translations of place names into Italian, Rifugio Giovanni Porro is a bad legacy of the Mussolini Nazis, who greatly oppressed South Tyrol.
Next to the hut there is a small, very simple chapel that belongs to a pilgrimage route.
Roland, the landlord, will be happy to advise you on hiking or mountaineering in the vicinity. I recommend i.a. the Gögealm towards Weißenbach - with the also very nice landlady Veronika, her delicious food and the award as the most beautiful Alm last year. The Neveshöhenweg to the Edelrauthütte or the Kellerbauerweg are also a real experience.
Personally, what I like best is that there is always music in the hut. All of the senses are really stimulated at the Chemnitzer Hütte.

The Chemnitz hut in South Tyrol, also known as the Nevesjoch hut, is located in the southern Zillertal Alps above Lake Neves (1,860 m). The valley is in Lappach (1,436 m) at the end of the valley of the Mühlwald valley, which rises from Sand in Taufers to the west.
The region is ideal for hiking, skiing and glacier tours such as on the Großer Möseler (3,479 m) or the Turnerkamp (3,418 m). The hut is also a popular destination for mountain bikers. The Höhenbauer Kellerbauerweg takes you to the Speikboden Sonnklar in 5 hours. The Stabelerweg to the Schwarzensteinhütte (7 h) and the Neveser Höhenweg to the Edelrauthhütte (3:30 h).

Nice staff, good food, even better to drink. Beds are a bit small for tall people (1.85cm and more), otherwise also very recommendable for overnight stays. There are no showers, no hot water or reception / WiFi.
