Early on Sunday 30 October 2022 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 7:13am in Geneva and set at 6:30pm in the evening, according to timeanddate.com. Extended evenings will not return until Sunday 26 March 2023, when at 2am clocks will shift forward one hour.
On Sunday, daylight will arrive 7 minutes earlier in Zurich at 7:06am. Zurich is roughly 200km east of Geneva so the day starts slightly earlier there.

when we will stop that ?

I have a question: Why are the Swiss people still put up with this nonsense? You aren’t part of the EU. You can decide to put an end to this mess anytime.

Why do we continue to do this? Surely it’s time to end this absurd procedure. It’s inconvenient and disruptive. Let’s just stay with one time for the whole year. From my perspective, I don’t care if we choose to stay with winter time or summer time but let’s just choose one and keep it.
