    After a relaxing night in Schönau, you start the second stage with a good breakfast and good cheer. Today you can expect pure nature again and a lot of spiritual inspiration. After you have left Schönau, it goes up to the Herrgottsitz. As the name suggests, there is a seat-shaped hollow on this imposing rock formation, on which God is said to have rested after the creation of the earth. Take a seat too and enjoy the peace and quiet and the beautiful views.The next section of the Johannesweg leads you to the Prandegg castle ruins, where you can enjoy a wonderful panoramic view of the Alps from the tower. The next highlight also guarantees you a great view. Because after a good 200 meters of ascent you will reach the Herzogreitherfelsen, which can be seen from afar. Steps, ladders and steel cables carved into stone make it easier for you to climb the impressive granite rock formation.Now you continue to hike to the tranquil town of St. Leonhard near Freistadt. It is worth visiting the pilgrimage church, whose origins go back to the beginning of the 12th century. We continue to the Bründl Chapel - another station on the Johannesweg. This was built in 1728 on the old local road from St. Leonhard to Ennsedt. It goes uphill over the Haiderberg to Langfirling and then to Waldfeld, where the Galgenbühel is soon reached.Downhill, through the forest and along the main road you continue to hike to the Zwischenstromwiese. It is already located in the municipality of Weitersfelden. Here black and white Aist flow together and thereby form the Waldaist. Soon you will reach your today's destination - the beautiful place Weitersfelsen, where you will move into your accommodation. Look forward to a relaxing evening with a good meal and a glass of wine.
