Time change: Summer time ends - clocks are changed at night

Daylight saving time ends this weekend. The clocks will be set back from 3:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. on Sunday morning (October 30). Normal time, also known as winter time, then applies for half a year.

On March 26, 2023, the clock will be turned again. The time change was reintroduced in 1980 with the aim of making better use of daylight. However, critics repeatedly question the energy-saving effect.

The signal for the automatic clock change in Germany comes from the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) in Braunschweig. The authority's experts ensure that radio-controlled clocks, station clocks and many industrial clocks are supplied with the signal via a long-wave transmitter. The transmitter called DCF77 is located in Mainflingen, Hesse.
