Normally, googling "Time in Paris" or "Time in California" will output the local time at the given location in a small box, like so:

Tume in location when not logged in

However, for me, this only work when I'm not logged in. As soon as I log in on my Google account, this type of search no longer works:

Time in location when logged in

    Works for me. Does your account indicate you're in a country besides the U.S.? – ale Feb 18 '16 at 15:08
  • It probably does. Why? – Timst Feb 18 '16 at 15:32
  • A lot of Google features aren't available in all countries. Based on the menus I see in your screen shots, I'll bet you started at google.com, but when you logged in, you were redirected to google.de, and that domain doesn't have the feature. – ale Feb 18 '16 at 20:06
  • After logging in, go to google.com/ncr (no country redirect) and see if "time in [location]" works. – ale Feb 18 '16 at 20:13
  • Aha, I suspected something like that. I tried the /ncr, but it doesn't seem to have any effect. – Timst Feb 19 '16 at 8:00

It turns out not to be an issue of country or domain, but an issue of language: my Google was set up in Norwegian (as can be seen on the screen). Switching it back to English (or other supported languages) fixed the issue.
