Simply said, the trouble it takes to stand on Marienbrucke and behold mad King Ludwig II's Schloss Neuschwanstein is worth every Euro, hour and mile. And since you are headed to the bridge, you might as well take-in the tour of both castles and the Bavarian Kings Museum. All are quality attractions and worth the effort. My tips are to... More

What a view!!! Is the best look to the castle. It worth the extra walk. Once you are there you will forget the sore legs.

The view is definatively worth a visit. However, the bridge "seems" stable but it is only out of wood planks and moving heavily as soon as someone else steps on. Continue the walk over the bridge and climb up a few meters and you will have the most beautiful and quiet view of the Castle. Lovely it up there (ps.:... More

If you are at Schloss Neuschwanstein, and have some moments to spare, make the walk to Marienbruke. The view of the castle is one you've seen many times before, and for good reason. It is beautiful, although expected. What I didn't expect (and what my review's title refers to) were some stunning views of Schloss Hohenschwangau, the mountains, and the... More

We walked up here while waiting for our castle tour. Lovely little hike and incredible views from the bridge. I was a bit light headed due to the height but was well worth it! We hiked beyond the bridge and it was lovely. I believe there are hiking trails all over up there. Would plan more time to hike around... More

Very short walk from where the bus drops you off for the castle. Awesome photo opportunities of the castle from this bridge. There is also some nice waterfalls down below. Worth the trip!!

Marienbrucke offers the best view of Neuschwanstein; it is an easy walk from the castle and the route is well marked. For an even better view, walk 5-minutes past the bridge and climb the ridge above Marienbrucke. Don't neglect to take a moment to enjoy the small fall running in the gorge the bridge straddles.

If you don't want to stand in line for visiting the castle, I suggest to talk a walk to Queen Mary's Bridge. From here you have an outstanding view of King Ludwig's famous Neuschwanstein Castle. If you don't want to walk up to the bridge, you can use one of the buses run by public transportation.
