Police fired rubber bullets and teargas to disperse the youths, who caused damages worth between 100,000 ($113,000) and 200,000 francs, by smashing windows and damaging cars.
Most of the detainees are not Zurich residents and are below 25 years of age. Police official Daniel Leupi described them as "riot tourists."
About 50 of them are in police custody and due to appear before the prosecutor on Monday.
