Mary Bridge closure


Im will be coming a long way from India to visit Neuchwanstein in the last week of sept. But saddened by the news that Mary 's bridge from where one gets the most beautiful photograph of the castle will be closed.

Im mostly visiting bavaria for photography.The bridge being closed are there any other places from where one can get a good view of the castle?

I heard there is a boat ride somewhere in Allegau from where one can get a beautiful panoramic view of the castle.

Any idea where this river is near fuesen?

Will it be also very unusually crowded during octoberfest time?

Look forward to your suggestions for a good alternative to Mary bridge .

Not a river, but a lake. Lake Forggensee.


There are also 2 further lakes closer to Neuschwanstein Castle.

- Alpsee where you can rent boats



- (small) Schwansee
