Get hours an minutesfrom NSDate

I saved a date in a sqlite database. Know I try to get the hours and the minutes. But the hours are shifted by 2.

print(calendar.timeZone)
while result.next() {
var hour = 0
var minute = 0
let calendar = NSCalendar.currentCalendar()
if #available(iOS 8.0, *) {
calendar.getHour(&hour, minute: &minute, second: nil, nanosecond: nil, fromDate: result.dateForColumn("time"))
print(result.dateForColumn("time"))
print("the hour is \(hour) and minute is \(minute)")
}

}


I get the following output:

Europe/Berlin (GMT+2) offset 7200 (Daylight)
2016-08-17 18:44:57 +0000
the hour is 20 and minute is 44
2016-08-18 18:44:57 +0000
the hour is 20 and minute is 44
2016-08-19 15:44:57 +0000
the hour is 17 and minute is 44
2016-08-18 16:44:57 +0000
the hour is 18 and minute is 44
2016-08-17 18:44:57 +0000
the hour is 20 and minute is 44
2016-08-18 18:44:57 +0000
the hour is 20 and minute is 44
2016-08-19 15:44:57 +0000
the hour is 17 and minute is 44
2016-08-18 16:44:57 +0000
the hour is 18 and minute is 44


The timezone is correct. I tryed two other solutions. But it is always the same problem.

Answer

The result.dateForColumn("time") is in UTC since you have +0000 whereas the second output is in another timezone (Europe/Berlin (GMT+2)), so the date is the same.
