Western European Time (WET)

The differences of the several time zones to each other are always specified in relation to the "Coordinated Universal Time" (UTC), the time on the prime meridian (zero longitude). The Western European Time is consistent with UTC +0.

Countries with the Western European Time, in which a switch to daylight saving time is common, turn the clock forward by 1 hour in summer. Like this they switch to Western European Summertime (WEST) and reach UTC +1.

The Western European Time applies to 5 countries.
