Excellent mountain hut Jan 16, 2017
This charming, rustic mountain hut is one of my most recent discoveries. It is located on top of Mt. Geising, accessible by walking/hiking only. Shortest and least strenuous walk is from Altenberg centre/train station, about 40 minutes on slow pace.

The present building dates from 1906, it was run down in 1989 when family Klein took over. It took them a real effort to renovate - or rather: reconstruct - the hut step by step; nowadays it is in perfect shape, the wooden interior and the tiled stove provide a warm, friendly, rustic atmosphere. The very friendly, outgoing and talkative (!) host makes you feel right at home - not long and he addresses you informally (German: "Du"). He is also in charge of the tower, admission is 1 Euro, but he let the fee off for me, saying "the viewing conditions were not too good".

Open all year through, closed on Wed/Thur except during school holidays in Saxony.

Favorite Dish: Hearty, quite simple dishes here, very inexpensive. I had Bauernfrühstück (farmer's breakfast) for lunch, roast potatoes with bacon and onions and scrambled eggs, along with Rechenberger beer, from a regional microbrewery - a small glass (0.3 l) Pils and a small glass dark beer. The check came to 8.40 Euro - a steal! (It is hard to find a dish that is more expensive than 8 Euro, btw.) The food was a big portion, and both food and the beer were yummy. I'll be back soon (in summer, when the wildflowers are in bloom.)
