Neuschwanstein Castle from the Marienbrücke

The classic view of Schloss Neuschwanstein from the Marienbrücke (St Mary's Bridge). It looks peaceful, but there were hundreds of other tourists pushing us along.

Be prepared to see a fair bit of this view. After buying your tour ticket, it's someplace to hang around until the tour starts.

We visited in August. So did hundreds of other people.

The throne room is stunning, but many of the other rooms inside are unfinshed. Many people say the exterior is better than the interior, and in some ways this is true, but only because the castle was never completed.

A bit of a non-standard view of the castle on the way up to the Marienbrücke.
