  1. Hi everyone,   I moved into a new apartment July last year, and it turns out (I didn't know this at the time of the visit) that its walls are crap, and everything can be heard through the walls. Above me, there's a family living with a young child, who keeps running around, and they make noise - I have complained to my landlord a few times and he said he talked to them and hopes that it gets better, but the fact is that the house itself is crap and so even the everyday noises come through. This way, I can't even sleep in on weekends, as the child will get up at 6 on a Saturday or Sunday and they'll start making noise, play piano, etc., and I can't get my rest, especially if I go to bed late.    What can be done in this case, if anything? I'll eventually move out, just wondering what my options are right now.   Thanks!
  2. Haha Spielplatz; good to know about the new buildings, yeah, like I mentioned above, definitely lesson learned for next time.
  3. Had that kind of apartment before, it was gorgeous, but the problem was that no one here in Germany has AC, so in the summer, as the summers are going hotter and hotter, it's a living hell to be in, not even a portable AC does the job, and they sold that apartment anyways, so I had to move out. This is my 4th apartment in 6 years living here, and with each new place, I learn another lesson to check before I move in that I didn't know before. Why doesn't anyone have a list of things to check with apartments? We should have this
  4. Yeah, but in your case, you're not bothered by the noise, but I am - so I'll be moving out, I have no intentions of being friends with these people; I want my piece when I want it, and so many buildings here in Germany have this fault I take it, so lesson learned, and will definitely check the noise levels and who neighbours are before I sign the next lease.
  5. Great tip, thanks, will check them out!
  6. Bought ones for construction workers at OBI
  7. Nah, I'm avoiding, too pissed, it wouldn't go well. Already have earplugs, they don't help.
  8. Hi everyone, this might be a bit of a sensitive topic to anyone living with children, but I would still like to ask and see if anyone can share their opinion or possible experiences in a possibly similar situation. I am living below a family that has a very loud child that is constantly crying and running around in the apartment; the child seems to be about 3 years or so old. I have been living in this apartment for 8 months, and things haven’t improved at all. There is a lot of noise coming from the apartment above at various times, most often in the morning (6 A.M. sharp) and in the late afternoon, even on weekends, when I try to sleep in a bit longer in the mornings, but that is impossible because of the loud crying, screaming and running (as I’m writing this, the child has cried loudly and/or screamed at least 5 times in the last 20 minutes). I have already turned to the landlord and the management of the building, and they said they talked to the family, but nothing has changed. As this is a case where a child is making the noise, can I even do anything about it, even if it’s starting to affect my quality of life, wakes me in the morning and is not allowing me to relax in my own home? Thanks everyone!
