I have always found it simplest to do this by way of the net. The
rdate command contacts a time-date server and sets your system-clock
accordingly. I don't know which servers are available in Germany, but
for the US there is, for instance:

   rdate time.nist.gov

Once you've done this, you can synchronize the system clock and the
hardware clock with:

   hwclock --systohc

I hope this is useful,
