We Germans use the 24-hour system. If you see an hour greater than 12 just subtract 12 to get the p.m. time.

For example: 14:00 Uhr 

It’s 2pm. (14 – 12 = 2)

What is Daylight Saving Time?

On Sunday 29 October 2017 the clock will be set back. The German time will then match the Central European Time (CET) or (GMT+1) again.
