Pöllatschlucht (Pöllat Ravine)

I just found a new favorite nearby spot today! There's a ravine under Neuschwanstein, which you can see from Marienbrücke (Mary's Bridge), but I didn't know you could go down into it until today. What a great place! I had a couch surfer (Stelios) in town from Cyprus for the day, and I just found out about this place, so after the castles we took the path down into it. It was really beautiful and I know I'm going to spend a lot of time there. Another nice thing is that there weren't many tourists at all. I can't believe it took me so long to find out about such a great place so near the castles. Everyone only ever talks about the castles! This place is tops in my book.

You can see Marienbrücke at the top

To give you an idea of scale, look at how small Stelios is in comparison. (lower right corner)

A brief pan around

I will be returning soon, that's for sure!

It's amazing that you have been to the Pöllatschlucht and even taken photos of Noah's Ark, but not recognized it as such ;-).
