Time in Germany
The exact time in Germany is based on the time zones for Germany. We will always try to give you the exact time for Germany. There might be slight differences, since the time zones for Germany might change due to daylight savings time (DST).
Time changes in Germany 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 Germany, and falls back one hour in the fall for Germany. Adding an extra hour of daylight helps Germany to improve its tourism and depend less on Germany's electricity supplies.
