More about the time in France
France uses Central European Time CET and Central European Summer Time CEST. CET is UTC +0100 and CEST is UTC +0200. The prime meridian runs through France. Therefore an one hour offset between CET and UTC is more than one would expect. The result is a relatively late sunrise in France. France's latitude is 46° 00' N which makes the use of daylight saving time unsurprising.
