The images you see online of this bridge HAVE to be taken in the winter or right when the sun comes up, because in those photos the bridge has only one human being on it. We were there in August & there were hundreds of...More

If you are planning to visit Neuschwanstein Castle take touristic shuttle bus which drops you off near Mary's Bridge (clearly signed), leaving you a step, 10 minutes downhill walk to the castle - so be sure to see the view from Mary's Bridge before hiking...More

If you are are visiting the two castles in the area you shouldn't miss this. It has a tremendous view of Neuschwanstein. Just try and avoid visiting when busloads of tourists are there.

Great views. Go across the bridge and keep hiking for 20 minutes to get a fantastic view down to the castle. Not for the faint of heart.

So worth the hike. We were lucky in the sense that the tickets into the castle were all sold out so we decided to hike up here instead and were treated to the most spectacular views of the castle. The bridge itself looks rickety but...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

Yes. You can get good views of the Castle from the approach road to the Castle or the road between the castle and the bridge although the best views are from the bridge.
