Up on top we were deserved after this "hard walk" with a great view over the valley on the one side and mountains on the other and of course we had the opportunity to drink a cold beer.
On our way back we decided to walk not only because the cableway is quite expensive (12€ to go up, 19€ with return per person), but also to enjoy the rich nature we found ourselves in.
We took the longer path back to Hohenschwangau, because it is easier and when you either have dogs or children with you I would definitely advise you to take this path. Further up are a few places which are a bit tricky, but manageable and from then on it is a fairly easy descent.

However towards the end we came to the Marienbrücke - the bridge from which you can see Neuschwanstein castle and there was the usual struggle with crowds of tourists. The view was still pretty amazing.
