Calculate an average or typical time. If I would just use the median (or other "normal" types of calculating an average), for example 23:59 and 00:01 would yield 12:00 when it should 00:00. Is there a better method?

If there's some time of day when nothing happens, e.g. $4$ a.m., you can let the wraparound occur at that time; for instance times from $1$ a.m. to $4$ a.m. would become times from $25:00$ to $28:00$.
