I've watched the fireworks from Da Vinci's Garden of Inventions, Ireland, and near Griffon's splash pool, and they were all different but good viewing locations. I've never watched from Germany, so I'm wondering what the view is like from there. I imagine they could be viewed from in front of the Festhaus, but is that true or is there anywhere else in Germany to see them from? Is it obstructed there?
What about the bridge down on the water near the Rhine River Cruise boat docks? Is that a good viewing place?
Also, if you watch from the bridge leading to Festa Italia (over the RR tracks) can the music be heard there? I noticed when leaving after the fireworks last year, that I couldn't hear music while crossing over that bridge, but it could have been a one time fluke.
