Start of Daylight saving time

Coming Sunday, 29.03.2020, the time will be changed in Germany. At 2 a.m. at night the time will be moved forward to 3 a.m. This will make the night an hour shorter.  The initial idea of changing time dates back to 1784, when the then American politician Benjamin Franklin allegedly considered this because he wanted to save up on candles. In Germany the time change was introduced in 1916.  2021 will, however, most likely be the end of time changes in the EU countries.
