I'm struggling to decide as to choose between accusative and dative case while using auf. When I think dative should be used, it's accusative and vice versa. I know that with two-way preposition you use accusative for referring to movement or direction and for referring to location or position, you use the dative. But in the following two sentences, both cases are used even though the meaning and logic is very similar:
Plötzlich fällt der Tourist mit dem Kopf auf den Tisch.
Sein Gesicht landet auf dem Teller.
Also I assumed the dative should've been used in this sentence but it turned to be accusative:
Ich mag den Ausblick auf den Main.
What am I missing?
