It will be useful for you to understand the lay of the land and public transport, so that you can learn how to get there and orient yourself and make choices once you are there. Among other items, you know where you are starting from.
These two links are a good start:
The SBB ( Swiss Rail) time tables include trains, buses and cable cars.

The author likes Wengen, Wengen is a good starting point for many hikes. One of the most scenic easy hike s of 2-3 hours duration (including picture taking ) is the walk from Männlichen to Kleine Scheidegg, described in these articles. Other hikes in the area are described, ranging from easy to difficult.
If it is not snowed in when you are there, it fits your description. The problem is that it starts at about 2200 meters, and, even though it goes gently downhill, it may be above the snow line.
