Marienbrucke is just 10mins walk (uphill) from Neuschwanstein castle. The views provided from this bridge are famous. In my opinion, the views from up on this bridge are better than any view inside the castle (and you're not allowed to take photos on the inside...More

This bridge spans the gorge above Neuschwanstein and provides excellent views of the castle. The bridge is packed with tourists most of the day, but if you cross it and hike about 5-10 minutes up the hill beyond it, you get (even better) views and...More

If you don't fear heights or have a phobia of heights, then this bridge is a must. Beautiful bridge with a stunning view. You can take a lot of photos with the whole castle of Neuschwanstein. Take care the bridge is so narrow and might...More

I started to walk to this bridge with my friends before our 15:55 scheduled castle tour, but the line looked so long we worried we would miss the tour. That turned out to be a good call because the crowds had really thinned out by...More

The castle looks amazing from here. Even in photos doesn’t show the magnificent of it. But the bridge is small, and is full of tourists so it takes patience to get a great photo. At one point the bridge was so full, no one could...More

Oh my goodness, you must visit this bridge. Not just for the view of the castle, which is wonderful enough, but just to experience a creaking wooden bridge (with iron supports) over a narrow gorge! I'm not particularly scared of heights, but this bridge did...More

Marienbrucke is a wonderful vantage point to view the Neuschwanstein castle! We arrived about 9:30 in the morning and just beat the tour busses. Took the bus up and then walked the short climb to the bridge.Fortunately there weren't too many people there so we...More

Great views of Neuschwanstein. Also the rickety, creaking bridge feels like it's gonna collapse at any moment, which adds some excitement. (It was also super duper crowded when we were there, almost hard to get a picture of the castle without a dozen other tourists...More

This bridge is popular for taking a photo of Neuschwanstein Castle. You need to climb up from bus station for 30 mins. Or use a service bus then climb for another 10-15 mins.
