Looking out in a south-easterly direction from Neuschwanstein Castle you can see Marienbrücke (Mary's Bridge), some 250 metres away as the crow flies, which spans the large Pöllat Gorge, with a waterfall nearly 100 metres below it. It was from this bridge that King Ludwig II admired his dream castle, and it's well worth the twenty minute walk along the winding path to get this splendid view of the 'fairy tale' castle. Both shots were taken from the bridge, with V2 showing a wider view.
The palace has appeared prominently in several movies, including Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, and was the inspiration for Disneyland's Sleeping Beauty Castle.
As mentioned in my previous upload, you can't take photos inside, but this link has an excellent range of images, showing just how beautiful the interior is.
