How to deal with noisy party from neighbors?

One of my neighbors is playing loud music in his backyard and singing with around 10+ people. No doubt they will continue until 3am or 4am.
In every cool night they do the same thing.

I wonder that will the Geneva police deal with such noise nuisance case and will they charge for the call out(I read that police charge 400CHF for one call out in another thead)?

TY for reply.

Re: How to deal with noisy party from neighbors?

they won't charge you, they will charge the guy making the noise.

have tried asking your neighbour to turn the music down?

Bring a bottle and join the party.

Re: How to deal with noisy party from neighbors?

Have you the address of where the party is? Can we all go? I've got a string bag and a sixpack somewhere - I could bring a bottle of Bacardi in case there are women.

I doubt you can complain to the police at 22.50 on a Saturday night. 2 a.m perhaps.

Re: How to deal with noisy party from neighbors?

For another time invest in and partake of some natural 'herbal' sleep remedy.

It worked for me ..... I slept through the majority (at least 75%) of a 6.6 earthquake, where the epicentre was only about 5 miles away. It was only when the car alarms were competing with the banging and thumping that I eventually awoke, to enjoy about the last 10 or so seconds.

I actually felt disappointed and cheated, that I'd missed the opportunity of running around naked in the middle of the night, like a headless chicken. Although several of the aftershocks did compensate a bit.

If they're unreasonably loud, you can call the police and tell them the situation, especially if it's happening often. If you think they're too drunk to approach, it's not a great idea to go by and complain, best call the police.

You can also go by, bright and early Sunday morning, ring their doorbell and ask them to keep it down to a reasonable level even on Saturday night since everyone is sleeping with open windows on the cool nights.

Re: How to deal with noisy party from neighbors?

Going by bright and early on a Sunday morning is just nasty!!

But also shows that you were not really disturbed and kept up all night by their renditions of Johnny Hallliday!!

Where i used to live, most of the neighbours were invited anyway. And the music was turned down a smidgeon around midnight.

Perhaps the OP wasn't invited.

Exactly, wait until 23:01 then call the police

(Or "What would the Swiss do?")

If you declare domestic violence, they WILL show up, and quickly.

I wonder that will the Geneva police deal with such noise nuisance case [snipped]
I know Geneva like the back of my hand and I can tell you that they'll only intervene if several (5+ ?) tenants call the police on a noisy neighbor (at the same time).

If only one person calls them about a noise complaint, they won't do anything, they'll flag it as another "querelles de voisinage". At best they'll tell you to go and ask your neighbor to be more quite...

The already overstretched Geneva cantonal and municipal Police have more important things to do such as crackdown on drug dealers in Pâquis, Plainpalais ... (mostly by rejected asylum seekers and other illegal aliens), going after cars / motorcycles thieves; plus they regularly assist the understaffed federal border guards (gardes-frontière) enforcing the very porous border to prevent cross-border crime from neighboring France: Annemasse-Ambilly-Gaillard + bandes de Lyonnais.

You can always try to call the cops, but please don't expect wonders. A friend of my cousin once called the Geneva police after getting into a violent row with her boyfriend and she was told to call "la main tendue" or "SOS femmes" if things get really bad.

Be happy that you live in Geneva,a very pleasant and wealthy canton to live and work in... despite the noise

Re: How to deal with noisy party from neighbors?

The neghbours were yelling, screaming, and singing until 9AM today.

However, this was in Italy, at a motorcycle meeting, so par for the course.
