Official Bimmerfest Neuschwanstein Castle Photo spot.

Many ED Bimmerfest members photograph their car in front of Neuschwanstein. Here are the directions to the photo spot - so you can spend your time touring the castles instead of boring your wife or significant other looking for the perfect photo spot.

Basically, driving down the main road, you will see some open farm fields off to the right. There is a "no traffic allowed" sign at the entrance to the street (Red circle with white center), but if you don't drive too far no one seems to mind. Park near the tree at the fork in the road (three hundred meters from the main road) and photograph your car with the castle in the background.

Late afternoon is probably the best time for a shot. A polarizer filter is a good idea to bring the colors out in your paint job. Try to a long lens to help magnify the castle, or less of a telephoto of you want to emphasize the car.

Here are directions from the parking lot to the photo spot:

Thanks for the outstanding directions. Honestly, the place was kind of a freak show when I got there - two random families picnicking at the tree and two farmers on tractors trying not to run over them. I should have paid more attention to sun angle and some other details but I'm honored to post my photo with yours.

And just for the heck of it, the picnickers behind me.

Heads up to fellow fester going to the Neuschwanstein photo spot.

Weekends are really busy with tourist bicyclist and they get really mad that you are using "their" road. I couldn't resist and took a picture with my rental car, sorry I reserved a manual 3er but they gave me a E220d. :mad:

Made a quick run out to the spot for a couple pics before we head home. It's gotten cold here in MUC... from mid-70's a couple weeks ago now high-40's.

Sounds like we are sharing the same weather. I took these photos earlier this week and as it shows the temp was 44 F. Still warm enough though to enjoy top down driving given the heated steering wheel and neck scarf feature.

Once you get back home you can watch a live cam view of the same area below Neuschwanstein. About halfway across the panning display you can spot the road toward the BMW photo op.
