The Marienbrücke(Queen Mary's bridge) close to Neuschwanstein Castle offers the most beautiful and stunning views of the castle. It's a short walk uphill from the Neuschwanstein, only around 15 minutes, just follow the signs. There's also a bus which stops close to the bridge and departs below in Schwangau at parking P4.

The bridge itself was constructed in 1845 by order of King Maximilian II over the Pöllat gorge. In 1866 King Ludwig II had the bridge improved with an iron structure to admire his new castle. The bridge was named after Queen Marie of Prussia, the mother of King Ludwig II.

Keep in mind that the bridge is a very popular place for tourists and that it can be a bit crowded. Take your time and try to go to the end of the bridge, here are fewer people.
