One always relates to the next full hour, in other words, it names the fraction of the currently passing hour.
For example, "dreiviertel drei" (three-quarter three, see table below) stands for "three quarters of the third hour have passed".
On some radio stations, announcers regularly give the current time on both forms, as in "Es ist jetzt vierzehn Uhr einundfünfzig; neun Minuten vor drei" ("It is now fourteen fifty-one; nine minutes to three").
There are two variants of the 12-hour clock used in spoken German regarding quarterly fractions of the current hour.
Except for Austria, Germany and Switzerland, see the navigation box on the bottom to find individual articles per country. Some, such as Lithuania, have adopted the ISO-8601 "YYYY-MM-DD"; previously a mixed standard with ISO-8601 order but dots as separators was in use.
The traditional all-numeric form of writing Gregorian dates in German is the little-endian day.order, using a dot on the line (period or full stop) as the separator (e.g., “” or “15.4.74”).
In German-speaking Switzerland, only the 12-hour clock is used in everyday speech.
A variant of the 12-hour clock is also used, in particular in informal speech for approximate times.
As a European Norm, CEN and CENELEC member states are obligated to adopt the standard as national standard without alterations as well. YYYY format is used with dots as separators and with leading zeros.
In written German, time is expressed almost exclusively in the 24-hour notation (–), using either a colon or a dot on the line as the separators between hours, minutes, and seconds – e.g. The standard separator in Germany (as laid down in DIN 1355, DIN 5008) was the dot.
In 1995 this was changed to the colon in the interest of compatibility with ISO 8601.
