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

Marienbrucke is a wonderful vantage point to view the Neuschwanstein castle! We arrived about 9:30 in the morning and just beat the tour busses. Took the bus up and then walked the short climb to the bridge.Fortunately there weren't too many people there so we...More

Great views of Neuschwanstein. Also the rickety, creaking bridge feels like it's gonna collapse at any moment, which adds some excitement. (It was also super duper crowded when we were there, almost hard to get a picture of the castle without a dozen other tourists...More

The first time I visited the castle was not aware of the bridge. So when I returned for a second visit I had to check this out and was not disappointed except for the bad weather. Pictures of the castle from the bridge can be...More

This bridge is popular for taking a photo of Neuschwanstein Castle. You need to climb up from bus station for 30 mins. Or use a service bus then climb for another 10-15 mins.

I doubt many people come here for the bridge, though I am sure that a bridge aficionado (are there such people) could appreciate it in its own right. What you come here for is the view of the famous Neuschwanstein castle. To enjoy this postcard...More

GO EARLY!! That is my #1 tip about doing this bridge. My husband and I were some of the first people up here and we had the bridge all to ourselves. The lighting was a little strange on the castle, so if you're concerned about...More

My wife and I rode the bus up to the bridge from town for €5 total. The bus was extremely crowded, definitely overpacked. We got to the bridge and it was also extremely overcrowded. There were so many people you could feel the bridge boards...More

I visited on a Saturday morning, I parked by 8 and hiked up one of the paths in the woods that was steeper than the paved path, but definitely quicker! Beat the crowd and got the bridge almost to myself. It is definitely worth the...More

Sorry, I thought the bridge a little disappointing. I thought it was a destination in its own right, architecturally perhaps, very presumptious of me. It is in fact a photo' op' site for the view of Neuschwanstein Castle used by all and sundry, and a...More
