You will have better luck by asking your question on the Zurich board here: tripadvisor.com/ShowForum-g188113-i337-Zuric…

Another website that explores "standard" costs is www.city-data.com

The US State Department guidelines set the daily per diem for Zurich for $508 US Dollars maximum per day.

I don't think you could base your budget on a per diem. In any case, the per diem seems to include a hotel room as otherwise, you cannot possibly spend USD508 in one day for a normal person.

I would say the above activities would cost CHF100-120 per day. Most of it will come from restaurant bills.

I would say sammyfloyd is close - probably 150-175chf per day excluding hotel would do the trick.

Have fun in zurich - use the excellent trolley system for around town transport
