Change to summer time 31 March


“Spring forward, fall back”

An early post this year, since there might be some confusion given that the US already changed time last weekend… So what’s Daylight saving?

It’s the time of the year when you get to sleep one hour less, but get to enjoy more (sun)light for a few months!

Daylight Saving Time (DST) in Brussels (and the rest of the EU) starts on Sunday, 31 March 2013, at 2:00h local standard time (at 3:00h in some European countries). That means that at 2:00h, we will have to set our clocks to 3:00h. Important especially if you are traveling on Sunday and have a flight or train to catch!

And remember: Daylight Saving Time is not applied on the same schedule worldwide, so check here if you need to see when the time change will happen elsewhere.

DST ends on Sunday, 27 October 2013 at 3:00h local time.
