It might depend on the time standard you use.

Madrid, Paris, Rome, Berlin, and Stockholm are all in the same time zone. It is GMT+1 in the winter and GMT+2 in the summer. So, if you are in Spain or France, you have daylight savings time all year, then you have double daylight savings time in the summer. How do you feel about sunset at 10:30 pm local time?

I could get used to that! It would exend our cruising every evening! Mind you, I hate getting up in the dark and going to work...
