Follow recommendations for access to Japan Day/the fireworks display. The view of the fireworks display is excellent anywhere along the Rhine embankment promenade. We therefore recommend that you use the stops and stations around the event site and listen to the announcements on the buses and trains.

Plan to arrive in plenty of time.

Japan Day on the Rhine embankment starts at 12:00. If you have time, we suggest that you stay on at the Rhine embankment after the fireworks display has ended to savour the moment and let the experience linger before heading back. Restaurants and pubs in the Altstadt and the food and drink stalls will remain open up until midnight.

Visitors who wish to travel in their own vehicle can leave their car in any of the car parks in the city centre. Please note that because of the significant number of visitors expected, however, parking spaces cannot be guaranteed.

Tip: The further away from the event you park, the quicker you will get home after the fireworks display.
