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 25 March 2018 the clock was put forward one hour.

On Sunday 28 October 2018 the clock will be set back. The German time will then match the Central European Time (CET) or (GMT+1) again.
