The timetable is your friend:

So is a map:

How much time you spend on top of the Jungfrau will determine how much time to allow for that segment. I cannot advise - have never spent the money to go up there, because I enjoy other things, instead.

I have stayed multiple days in Interlaken ,Wengen and Grindelwald and visited Jungfraouch and what I would recommend is that you take the train to Grindelwald ,go upto Jungfrau .

you should get a 10 minute wait at the Grindelwald station and you can get a view of the town from the station itself .I dont think theres a reason to walk in the town .

you will probably spend several hours at Jungfrau and then on the way down you can come via Wengen .you will get a beautiful view of Wengen as the train descends and then have a brief wait at Wengen station before train goes to Lauterbrunnen and you will again get beautiful views of Lauterbrunnen while train is descending

you coukd choose to walk 5 minutes to a view point in Wengen where you would get a beautiful view of the Lauterbrunnen valley and Jungfrau as well but you would then probably miss the next train .

if you do have the time and energy in Lauterbrunnen ,you can walk 10 minute upto Staubbach falls before taking train back to Interlaken .

As slowpoke pointed out ,trains from Wengen to Lauterbrunnen run every half hour .

I think you can get down in Wengen and walk to the left once you exit the station .the best viewpoint is from the church courtyard .if you stop at the Wengen tourist office (closes at 5)which is right next to the Wengen Mannlichen cable righht near thr station ,they can point you in the direction but its really a straight road from the station and very close and it is a stunning view .

theres also a view point if you walk to the right for 20 minutes but i liked that one less.

if you do the Interlaken - Murren loop ,recommend walking to Staubbach falls ,then taking post bus or walking to Trummelbach fallls ( must see ) and then bus or walk to Stechelberg and from there go to Gimmelwald by cable and then Murren and back to Lauterbrunnen .from Murren of course you coukd also go to Schilthorn or closer to Alhmendubel but I think that would make it too long and tiring .

It would make for long day, but with the trip up to Jungfraujoch in the AM from Grindelwald, it might be possible to come down via Kleine Scheidegg and Wengen, to Lauterrbrunnen, and make the trip along the valley floor , Mürren, Grütschalp. Lauterbrunnen, then back out to interlaken.

It would constrain the time spent at specific locations - on the Jungfrau, in Wengen, visiting the falls.....so it would not be a leisurely event.

A study of the timetable, plus consideration of time to stop at each place would give the answer.

Don't have the time to look it up at the moment, but there has been a very recent thread in the forums on the time it takes to see the various falls, including the short walk from Lauterbrunnen for the Staubach.
