How to photo this view of Neuschwanstein Castle

I have photo'ed the castle from Marienburg Bridge and above on the walk towards Tegelbahn but have yet to find exactly where this photo …images-amazon.com/images/I/817fRlqJ3PL._SL1… was taken from.

Would love some guidance how to get there from someone who has taken this shot please?

Thanks...

Thanks abalada. I have walked to the point where the 2nd photo was taken and got that shot (with scaffolding!!)

My next trip will mean I continue that walk all the way to Tegelberg and just hope to find the right spot. Given the number of photos that have been taken there with trees in foreground this would suggest it must be "reasonable" to find some sort of path.

While I have never been I disagree this shot was taken with a long lens from Tegelberg (it is somewhere much closer that must be accessed via a hard to find trail)

It also seems too low to be taken from any trail starting after the marienbrucke

I am very interested in solving the question sorry I don't know the answer

That foto must be done by climbers in the sheer wall between Tegelberg and Pöllat gorge or by a paraglider or from a drone or helicopter. There is no trail that would provide views from that angle.

The original photo was taken well before there were drones!!

I was assured by locals that there is a trail but it starts on private land near the tracks that lead to the Tegelberg cable car station.

On my last trip when all the trails around Tegelberg down were closed due to storm damage I settled for a shot with long lens from the cable car - not a bad compromise!
