I have been posting similar question on the Trip Advisor forum, but I decided to try my luck here, as I would like to get as many comments as possible. We will be reaching Grindelwald in a week or so and we have a total of 3.5 days to spend on the Jungfrau region. I did some research and along with some previous comments on TripAdvisor created a list of the more common walks people do. To my understand the higher elevation walks are going to be closed (Schynige Platte to First or Klien Schediegg to Männlichen), so that leaves me with the lower elevation walks. I also need to take in mind that it's probably going to rain, as according to the weather forecast, it has been raining for the last days as it is only the early spring afterall. I tried to pick hikes that will work on any weather, but it's hard to tell, so feel free to correct me if any of those walks are not worth it in a very cloudy/rainy day.
1. Kleine Scheidegg – Wengernalp – Wengen - Taking the Gondola to
Mannlichen for the view (to-do on the way back from Top of Europe - 1
2. Lauterbrunnen - Stechleberg (All waterfalls) - Lift to Gimmelwald and walk to Grütschalp (1 Day Total)
3. Gondola from Grindlewald to First -> Walk to Grosse Scheidegg (Less then Half a Day)
4. Schynige Platte - Oberberghorn - Schynige Platte (Half a Day)
5. First - Bachalpsee - First (Half Day)
Those are the walks I'm aware of, but I would love to hear from you if I missed an amazing, must-do walk. Most of them strike quite easy, but to my understanding, the more challenging walk require higher elevation which is not possible. I also feel that in case of a rain, I will have to skip Top of Europe, which make me worry I don't have enough things to do. I verified that the walks from First have high chances to be open with the Grindlewald information Center, but again - in case of a storm, I have 2-3 less walks to do.
Thank you! :)
