Hi,

If you're asking where is the best spot to see the fireworks, you should now that as far as we know, the city of Paris won't launch any "official" fireworks (I think they only did in 2000 or something). However I read there might be some "guerilla fireworks", which makes sense. I am wondering myself where would be the best places to launch some in case I bring any (not sure if it's legal though).
In any case, I think the best place for midnight would be the Sacré Coeur in Montmartre. If any fireworks are launched "here and there", I think it would definitely be the best place to see them, as you have a wonderful view of Paris up there, and the Eiffel Tower will be specially illuminated when the clock hits 12. I read there's gonna be people there but that it's gonna be way less crowded than the champs élysées for example. But it is "one of the best places for new year's eve" according to the internet. Anyway, that's probable where I'll be at least. Again, I think it would be the best chance to see any fireworks.

If your question was "where to launch fireworks myself?", sorry for having written all that haha (but people should know anyway). And again, if anyone has any info, I might be looking to launch some myself too (even though I'm not sure at all yet).

Don't Have Firework in Paris for the new year :/

Paris is dying, even the day of the year there are neighbors who complain about the noise! 450€ for the noise :(
