Hi GC! Your itinerary looks great and the 15 day Swiss Saver Pass
is a good decision. Some days are a bit full though, especially day 9, 10 and 11. You may want to skip some of the trips and hikes here and consider weather circumstances too. For example: if weather is great, you may want to spend more time up at Schynige Platte and the Niederhorn (which indeed is worth a visit in clear weather) and skip the Beatus caves which are inside the mountain and the Aareschlucht, which is nice in rainy weather as well. Alternatively, visit the caves and the gorge in bad weather and don't spend time and money on viewing points which may be covered in clouds. The general timetable
and the Jungfrau railways timetable
(which includes Kleine Scheidegg, Männlichen, First, and so on) will help you in deciding whether your plans are doable.
Yes, Thun is a nice town and worth exploring. And as for the Trümmelbach falls: they're in the Lauterbrunnen valley and can be reached very easily. Please find all information in this topic
. I think you've mistaken it for the Grindelwald glacier
, which is accessible through lots of stairs :-).
