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.

The views of Neuschwanstein castle from this bridge are breathtaking. We didn't bother doing a tour of the inside of the castle, instead we enjoyed the views from this bridge and walking around the outside. We were not disappointed, we really enjoyed the experience... and...More

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

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
