The slightly more demanding variant of the first stage on the Salzkammergut cycle path also leads you from the city of Salzburg via Eugendorf to the hill just before Enzersberg, from where you can see the Drachenwand in the distance. Before you turn five kilometers later from the cycle path, which here follows the Fuschler Ache to Gries (variant 1a), you still have enough time to enjoy this impressive sight.You miss a night under the Drachenfelsen, but as compensation you get a mountain stage with pleasant, but demanding ascents, great descents and a stop at Fuschlsee, which is idyllic and turquoise blue in the middle of the picturesque mountain backdrop. The second variant is therefore particularly suitable for somewhat more ambitious cyclists who are not afraid of the mountains.The route to Lake Fuschl branches off in Thalgau from variant 1a to the south and leads via three hairpin bends to the mountain ridge from which the Drachenwand rises later. Then it goes on a panoramic descent - with a small break uphill - down to the Fuschlsee. Here you can take a generous break and relax your legs in the cool lake water.On a further, not too long climb you drive further southwest to the pass at 763 meters and then over a more than five kilometer long descent - also with a short break - directly to Sankt Gilgen on Lake Wolfgang. In Sankt Gilgen, the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's mother, a visit to the Mozarthaus is of course particularly worthwhile, apart from a walk along the cozy waterfront.This variant ends in Sankt Gilgen. Alternatively, you can also spend the night at Lake Fuschl. From there it is only eight kilometers more and you will meet stage number 2 in Sankt Gilgen, which you can follow from now on. You save about the same distance at the beginning of the second stage.
