Time in France
The exact time in France is based on the time zones for France. We will always try to give you the exact time for France. There might be slight differences, since the time zones for France might change due to daylight savings time (DST).
Time changes in France are usually done to adapt citizen and tourist activity to the solar cycle. This allows for greater usage of daylight, reducing dependency on electricity. That is why the time is sent ahead one hour in the spring for France, and falls back one hour in the fall for France. Adding an extra hour of daylight helps France to improve its tourism and depend less on France's electricity supplies.
