Daylight saving time

Daylight saving time (DST) gives us the opportunity to enjoy sunny summer evenings by moving our clocks an hour forward in the spring.

The main purpose of daylight saving time (DST) is to make better use of daylight. We change our clocks during the summer months to move an hour of daylight from the morning to the evening.

DST, also known as summer time, always starts on the last Sunday in March and ends on the last Sunday in October.

For 2015 this will be as follows:

  • DST begins on Sunday 29 March at 2 am. The clocks are then set forward one hour.
  • DST ends on Sunday 25 October at 3 am. The clocks are then set back one hour.

The time zone for Norway is Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) +1 hour.
