What a view!

The view is so worth it. There is a little bit of a hike to get to the bridge itself but once there, just take in the view.

No visit to Neuschwanstein castle‬ is complete without visiting this bridge. It's a short and rather easy walk from the castle. The bridge is over a stunning cliff with a waterfall and river below and it offers unmatched views of the stunning castle. If there's a place that provides a photo-op of the castle - its this place. Don't miss... More

We hiked passed Castle Neuschwanstein for beautiful views and to admire the bridge spanning across the impressive gorge.

I took my family to the area to explore and take pictures of the castles. Sadly it was very crowded with Tourists since it's Winter break right now. The walk up to the castle is kind of strenuous (20-30 minutes), my 6 year old wanted to take lots of breaks and tried to get us to carry her. I would... More

The bridge is located about 70 miles southwest of Munich in Bavaria and can be easily visited using the train and a short bus ride. This bridge allows you to easily cross from one side of the Pollat River Gorge to... More

What no one tells you at the tourist off is ... ALL of the gorgeous photos of Neuschwanstein Castle are taken from this bridge, which is BEHIND the castle. Facing the castle, turn right and walk around to the opposite side. It's a 20-minute walk up a big hill but well worth it. It's actually very close to the bus... More

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.
