Kids in Berlin are free to make as much din as they like from Wednesday following new changes to the city's noise pollution laws which now "tolerate" their racket.
After complaints by residents living near play-areas and leisure centres, Berlin has changed its legislation to state that "the disturbing noise made by children is ... fundamentally and socially tolerable."
AdvertisementUntil now, only church bells, emergency service sirens, snow ploughs and tractors were exempt from laws governing noise.
The organisation for the protection of children welcomed the move, saying: "We live in a city and children should be allowed to play and make noise."
