Interesting stuff about Germany: culture, travel, news and everyday life

What time is it in Germany?

Pocket watch

All of central Europe is in one time zone, so when traveling to Germany from any neighboring country the time will be the same. If you’re making a phone call from somewhere further away, though, it’s always good to know what time it is so that you won’t ring your friends out of their sleep.

Here is a list you can use to easily figure out what the time in Germany is:

United Kingdom: add 1 hour (for example 2PM your time is 3PM in Germany)

United States Eastern Time: add 6 hours (for example 2PM your time is 8PM in Germany)
United States Central Time: add 7 hours
United States Mountain Time: add 8 hours
United States Pacific Time: add 9 hours

Australia Western Time: subtract 7 hours (for example 10PM your time is 3PM in Germany)
Australia Central Time: subtract 8 and a half hours
Australia Eastern Time: subtract 9 hours

New Zealand Standard Time: subtract 11 hours

I also pulled this useful map off of Wikipedia if you are in a time zone I haven’t listed:

And also watch out for Daylight Saving Time! Not all countries adjust their clocks that way, so there might be an additional one-hour difference.
