Early on Sunday 30 October 2016 Swiss clocks turn back one hour. Officially they are adjusted at 3am. This means you can stay in bed longer and it will be lighter when you get up. On the down side, it will be darker in the evenings.
The rest of Europe will adjust its clocks at the same time.
On Sunday morning the sun will rise at 7:14am and set at 17:24, according to timeanddate.com. The shortest day of the year is 21 December 2016. On this day in Geneva the sun will rise at 8:15am and set at 16:52, a duration of a little under 8 hours and 37 minutes, 18 minutes less than this coming Sunday’s 8 hours and 55 minutes.
Extended evenings will not return until Sunday 26 March 2017, when at 2am clocks will shift forward one hour.
