The Marienbrücke (Queen Mary's Bridge) seen from Neuschwanstein Castle at the village Hohenschwangau, Germany.

The Marienbrücke, or Queen Mary's Bridge, is where many of those classic photos of Neuschwanstein Castle are taken.
Named after Queen Mary (a Princess of Prussia), mother of King Ludwig II who built the castle, the bridge was built in 1866
and stretches across the Pöllat Gorge near the castle. The bridge is about 93 metres (304 feet) high and not only provides
wonderfully romantic views of the castle, but overlooks the Pöllat Gorge and the Pöllat Falls below. The way over the bridge
leads along a winding road to the hunting lodge (today a restaurant) on the Tegelberg mountain.
