Ok, if we use the Grutschalp route we leave from Lauterbrunnen BLM at 13:38. That will give us time to buy our tickets, and get organized. 22 minutes in Murren. We arrive at Schilthorn at 14:57.
We can return using the Stechelberg route, leaving Schilthorn at 16:55. There is a long layover at Stechelberg of 37 minutes, and we return to Lauterbrunnen at 18:27.
I think this plan is better:
Take the Stechelberg route to go there, leaving Lauterbrunnen Bahnhof at 13:35 and arriving in Schilthorn at 14:27 (so a half hour sooner)
Returning via the Grutschalp route, leaving Schilthorn at the same time (16:55), we have the same 37 minute layover but in Murren, and we arrive back at Lauterbrunnen at 18:19.
What do you think? Is going to Schilthorn better with one method over the other? Or will we do fine as long as we take each leg of the trip differently? Obviously all of this is dependent on good weather....
