Welcome to Daylight Saving Time

In the night of 29 March we changed to "summer time" (daylight saving time) by turning the clocks forward one hour so that now light extends into the evening hours. This change of time still causes a lot of controversy, but I'm happy about it as it allows me to enjoy some daylight after work.
This photo shows the Anker Clock which forms a bridge between the two parts of the former Anker Insurance Company‘s building. It was created by the painter and sculptor Franz von Matsch and built from 1911 to 1917. In the course of 12 hours, twelve historical figures or pairs of figures move across the bridge. Every day at noon, all of the figures parade, each accompanied by music from its era.
