Unless you are travelling with the EU national on whom you are dependant, there is no guarantee you will be admitted, and, frankly, should not be allowed to. You will, therefore, need a schengen visa to visit that country as an individual. I don't know what to suggest for your GF as you have not mentioned her status.

The same advise applies as to your other threads. A residence card should be sufficient if traveling with your EU durable partner. I recall you had problems entering Poland and understand this is why you wish to apply for a Schengen visa.
