More about the time in Germany

Germany uses Central European Time CET and Central European Summer Time CEST. CET is UTC +0100 and CEST is UTS +0200. The longitude of Germanys eastern border is 15° 00' E. Therefore an one hour offset between UCT and CET is exactly as one would expect. Germany is of course one of the biggest countries in Europa. It takes the sun over half an hour to “travel” from Germanys eastern border to its western border. Germany latitude is 51° 00' N, it is therefore not surprising the country uses daylight savings time.
