Re: How to live next to a church?

I got my apartment partly thanks to church bells. The original renters moved in without knowing how loud and constant the chimes were. The mother wanted somewhere bigger and quieter. I was very happy to step in as Nachmieter.

I adore the bells, especially the peals before mass. Iím not religious, but itís very evocative and nostalgic.

Itís all a matter of Einstellung. Being a bit of a grumpy git, I find teens playing Taylor Swift or whatever other crap youths listen to way more annoying, even though objectively itís way less loud.
