There was a farmer on a tractor doing some work in that vicinity when I was there, so it was a no-go. I immediately recognized it when I drove by.

My alternative photo location was a small parking lot right on the edge of the town of Schwangau, with a clear view to Neuschwanstein. I used my 55-200 VR at about 80 mm, f/18, which allowed me to get the castle and the car in focus.

The location ("Official" location circled in light blue, my legal alternative is the "A"):

Without polarizing filter (notice the glare on the windows and the blue tint to the forest ):

With polarizing filter (no window glare, nice colors, sharper woods ):
