The Swiss change their time tonight and will be able to … | Instant News


On Sundays, Switzerland will sleep for an hour: at 3 a.m., the clock must be set back to 2 a.m. Removing the annual change in time is at the center of debate in Europe, but no decision has yet been taken.

Changes in time at the end of October are often associated with changes in winter time. “But in reality, there is only normal time and summer time,” said the Federal Metrology Institute (METAS) in a press release published on Tuesday. Swiss Standard Time is Central European Time for over 125 years.

Summer time has existed in Switzerland since 1981. It was introduced to synchronize Swiss clocks with those of neighboring countries. “This decision was primarily motivated by economic reasons,” notes METAS, because time differences can impact commercial transactions or transportation, for example.

Rebelotte in 6 months

The possibility of removing the annual change in time is currently the subject of political discussion, in Switzerland but also within the European Union. In March 2019, the European Parliament called for the transition to standard time to be abolished from 2021. However, all decisions have not been taken, either at the EU level or in every state.

Until further notice, the current regulations remain in effect, underscoring METAS. Therefore, on Sunday March 28, 2021, we will turn to summer time again.
