Google's Mountain View headquarters — known as the Googleplex — have long been lauded as the cream of the crop when it comes to tech campuses.

But Google's offices in other cities aren't too shabby, either. 

Whether it's a secret room in the company's Ontario offices or an indoor basketball court in Zurich, Google has created some of the most creative, beautifully designed and quirky offices in all of tech. 

Google employees have many well-publicized and fantastic benefits like in-house massage rooms, free gourmet food, and fabulous parties and retreats. The physical space employees work in is definitely a perk of the job. 

Check out some of the coolest features in Google offices around the world.
