The sun was high overhead but it was still hazy over the castle so not the best photo situation. But I was there :-)

Nice pics all, but I love the one "portrait" view with the tree branch framing the upper left corner of the shot. Fantastic!

So,

I still regret not doing what I'm about to suggest ... I was sick, sick, sick when we were in Hohenschwangau and just couldn't make myself get up early the 2nd day.

On the first day we were there, I got up at 7a and ran up the hill-side to Neuschwanstein. The area up there was completely deserted. No one at the castle or near it, no one on the road and no barriers.

I believe it would be easy (and legal from what I could tell) to get up there 7-7:30 am and take a few nice pics right next to the building. Better take a very wide angle lens, though.

Well, the weather in the morning was awful, so we did not get to the site until the sun was in a position that caused a lot of glare on the hood. Still it's a nice shot.

I also went to the alternate spot near Schwangau. I think I like that one better.

Just got back. Here is pic I took at the Neuschwanstein Castle. IMHO, this spot offers a better angle than the nearby "official" spot.

Well, it was a so-so place for the picture on 5/13 of this year. The entire side of the castle facing the bridge was covered with construction cloth and scaffolding.


FWIW,

If you're really adventurous, continue past the Marienbrücke and up a single track that climbs the hill behind ... doesn't remove any scaffolding, though


If you click it, it will grow

Darn, that would have been nice - although a late evening sunset in June/July would be better lighting.

This It has been done before (at night). See post #18 here for what the photo looks like (first page).

As I recall, there is a "do not enter" sign at the beginning of the driveway (if you understand European signs), but there is nothing to stop you from driving up there during off hours.

Here are my pictures. Unfortunately, July 6 2009 was a rainy day. The second photo is from the following day, near Interlaken, CH.

The car is a Tasman Green 335i w/ Jade Gray two-tone interior and Gray Poplar wood trim.
