    It seems that I can't get it right (->the Netherlands) Gmt+1 hour ... Gmt +2 hours, Gmt + 0.
    No matter what I do or change, it's always wrong. Somebody?:(

    When there is a problem, it's generally because of the javascript used to automatically detect the change in daylight savings. Disabling that (ie. set "DST corrections always off" in the options screen) and setting the correct time zone (GMT +01:00) should fix it.

    Yours should be GMT +1, you can set it in your options. Also check autodetect dst.

    I have the same as Gerard.
    (in Dutch: ik heb hetzelfde als Gerard).

    User CP > Edit Options > Date & Time Options

    Did you hit "Save changes"?

    Thanks LowWaterMark, I disabled "DST corrections always off" (seems to be the problem) and setting the time correct (GMT +0.100). I am very happy :)

    99% of the time, the automatic detection function works, as it does for Gerard and Jan above. However, at every change over, we have a few members with automatic detection set, but that never get automatically corrected to the proper DST setting. It's because the javascript for that detection downloads and runs in the user's browser, detects that the date has moved passed the DST boundary, and it attempts to correct the setting transparently in the User CP. However, somehow it gets blocked. Sometimes it's as easy as having Javascript disabled, but it can be many other things, such as script-blockers, software firewalls, proxy software, even disabled meta refresh - all of which prevent the script from changing your User CP DST setting. In these cases, it's easiest to just disable the automatic detection and set it manually as you've done.
