The second part of the detour into the Mozart village of St. Gilgen leads from St. Lorenz to Lake Wolfgangsee. The first lake stage! There is the Scharflinger Höhe mountain pass to master between Lake Mondsee and Lake Wolfgangsee, too!

St. Lorenz in a southerly direction, after about 1 km we reach the federal  road, which we cross carefully, and then turn on to the cycle path between the shores of the lake and the road – we continue along Lake Mondsee to Scharfling – there is a 2 km long ride up to the Scharflinger Höhe (for a traffic-free, but much steeper alternative, turn right before the Gasthof Scharflinger and, after 200m of having taken the left fork, you will encounter, 300 metres later, the steep, 1 km long climb; after the steepest final stretch where you can push your bicycle and luggage if you need to, you reach the Scharflinger Höhe) – then it is slightly downhill, past the picturesque Lake Krottensee and Schloss Hüttenstein Castle – after about 1 km turn left into the village of St. Gilgen – the signs for the Mozart cycle path end at the Mozartplatz (we reach the Mozart memorial in the former district when we take a left to the lake from the centre of the village).
