How can our party of 6 get up to Neuschwanstein if we do NOT want to take the tour but just visit outside and go to the Marienbruke bridge(we have toured before). Thank you!

Catch the local bus (from the train station believe it's bus 73 or 78) and get out at Hohenschwangau - Alpseestrasse. From there the way should be familiar (follow the signage). You don't need a ticket to get into the castle's courtyard.

You can purchase the bus tickets from the driver. Expect lots of people.

Also, you can walk. It's about 5 km from Füssen to Schloss Neuschwanstein. On a pretty morning that should take a bout an hour. Then catch the bus back if needed.
