Carousel on the bridge.
Truffles in the window of Confiserie Teuscher.
I want one of those balcony windows in my house, although I guess that'd be a tad out of place in Mountain View.
Steps lead up to the street and down to a small walkway alongside the canal.

View of the city with St. Peter's church (center left) and city hall (right).
Old town Zurich.
Old town Zurich and its many outdoor cafes. There was a guy selling the most amazing chocolate/banana crepes out of a makeshift tent here.

View through the upstairs window of the antique toy museum. The domed building (right) is a sky observatory. Rumor has it there is also a rotating restaurant up there (eek).
