In relation to the time change in the fall, it is often said that clocks are switched from summer time to winter time at the end of October. According to the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS), there is only standard time and summer time. Standard time in Switzerland has been Central European Time for 125 years.

Summer has been in effect in Switzerland since 1981. Since 1996, people in all EU countries have set their clocks forward one hour on the last Sunday in March and one hour on the last Sunday in October. On Sunday, March 26, 2023, time will switch back to daylight saving time.
