The Time System in Germany

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?

Daylight Saving Time (DST) also called "Sommerzeit" in Germany (summer time) is a seasonal time change so that evening daylight lasts longer. The clocks are set forward one hour in the spring and backward one hour in the autumn.

On Sunday 26 March 2017 the clock was put forward one hour.

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.

How many time zones has Germany?

Germany has only 1 time zone. Germany is GMT/UTC + 2 hours during Daylight Saving Time and GMT/UTC + 1 hour during Standard Time.
