Early on Sunday 27 October 2019 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 7:08am in Geneva and set at 17:29, according to timeanddate.com.
The shortest day of the year is 22 December 2019. 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.
Extended evenings will not return until Sunday 29 March 2020, when at 2am clocks will shift forward one hour.
At the same time a cloud of uncertainty hangs over daylight savings in Europe. In August 2018, after a public consultation where 84% of 4.6 million people across the EU called for an end to daylight savings, EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said millions “believe that in future, summer time should be year-round, and that’s what will happen”.
