The other advantage of bund, bobl and schatz is the commission cost. I don't know any other future that is cheaper than these three.
Eurostoxx is a bit more expensive. ES a LOT more expensive to trade in terms of commission.

I'm surprised so many people said the Bund was not good for trading. Maybe back in 2007 that was the case but I've been trading it for 6 months now and I've been doing well. I trade Bund in the European morning and ES in the US morning and my Bund performance is much better than my ES peformance.

The last poster is right, the bund commission is roughly half that of ES (comparing commission to tick value). Getting half price commissions is huge. Makes it much easier to scalp. I'm not really a scalper but I don't hesitate to scale out if it doesn't move my way.

Here's my bund equity curve since Oct 29 (prior to that I was trading different setups):
