Budget for Switzerland

Jump to last reply

Quick question after all the research I have done on going to Switzerland. I am planning a trip in September to Paris and Wengen (after all your wonderful suggestions) and am trying to see if I am planning around the budget ok. Once I have the plane ticket, hotels, and train tickets out of the way for both Paris and BO, I have approximately $300 per day for just me. This needs to buy food (typically something very budget friendly like pizza or burger), the sites (museums are included with the cost of the train pass), any shopping (I buy some souvenirs but nothing crazy).

For food, I have a budget of approximately 100CH per day
For sites, I have a budget of approximately 50CH per day
For shopping, I have a budget of approximately 50CH per day
This still leaves 100CH for any "unexpected" surprises or trip up the mountain (weather pending).

I don't have plans for anything crazy such as paragliding or white water rafting.

Is this enough of a budget to travel here?
