Marienbrücke, situated above Pöllat gorge, is a viewpoint and a great spot to take photos from. The bridge is a completely independent structure. You will not have to cross the bridge in order to reach Neuschwanstein Castle.
Please note that the tickets for the royal castles can only be purchased in the Ticket Center and ONLY on the day of your visit.
Since the number of tickets available each day is limited, high demand can lead to the tickets being sold out in the afternoon already. We ask for your understanding.
The shuttle bus to Neuschwanstein castle and the horse carriages service to both castles are currently operating without restrictions.
Due to asphalting work, the road used by the horse carriages to Neuschwanstein castle will be unfortunately blocked. The carriage service to Neuschwanstein castle will be unavailable from June 7th to June 10th, 2018.
The shuttle bus from the village (parking lot P4, "Alpsee") to Mary's Bridge (Neuschwanstein castle) will operate without restrictions.
