whence comes the summer time in Switzerland?

The System with the time change has a long history: one hundred years Ago, the Federal Council, the neighboring countries to adapt and the summer time to introduce refused.

The goal was to save against the Backdrop of coal shortages during the First world war, energy, as the historian Jakob Messerli kept in a Dissertation festival.
