Official timezone database for Python.

Project Description

Official timezone database for Python.

Supports Python 2.7+ and 3.5+.


pip install pytzdata


You can access the content of a specific timezone file by using the tz_file() function:

from pytzdata import tz_file

with tz_file('Europe/Paris') as f:
    # Do something with the file

If you just want to know the path to a specific timezone file, you may use the tz_path() function:

from pytzdata import tz_path


By default, pytzdata will use the bundled timezone database, however you can set a custom directory that holds the timezone files using the set_directory function:

import pytzdata


You can also set the PYTZDATA_TZDATADIR environment variable to set a custom directory.


To make a new release just follow these steps:

  • make data
  • Update version numbers in pytzdata/ and tests/
  • make tox
