Time in Norway

In Norway the standard time is the Central European Time (UTC+01:00). Norway observes Summer Time (sommertid, daylight saving time). The transition dates are the same as for other European countries.

Svalbard and Jan Mayen observe the same time as the mainland.

Norway stretches more to the west and east than it might look like on a map. The westernmost point in Norway proper is on 4°29′E longitude, meaning 42 minutes difference between mean solar time and official time. The easternmost point in Norway proper is on 31°10″E longitude, meaning 64 minutes difference between mean solar time and official time.
