More about the time in Netherlands

The Netherlands uses Central European Time CET and Central European Sumer Time CEST. CET is UTC +0100 and CEST is UTC +0200. The Netherlands's latitude and longitude is 52° 23' N and 4° 55' E, it’s a small country. Geographically UTC +0000 would be more suitable for the Netherlands. Because the country observes CET the sun rises relatively late in the Netherlands. Considering its high latitude it is no surprise the country observes daylight savings time. If you plan to visit the country remember the following: The country is called the Netherlands, not Holland. Holland is just a part of the Netherlands. The language is called Dutch and so are the inhabitants of the country. Because the country is very small the sun can “travel” from the east to the west of the country in 15 minutes. Of course size isn’t everything, there was a time the Dutch ruled the world.
