in reply to Arno
I agree with Arno's recommendation not to stay in both Wengen and Gimmelwald, for the reasons he notes.
Further, if you aren't yet aware, Gimmelwald is quite remote and VERY quiet. There is really nothing there other than a couple of hostels and a handful of houses. Many people that haven't yet visited the Jungfrau region think they want to stay in Gimmelwald because Rick Steves hypes it. The views from there are nice, but no nicer than at least a half a dozen other places in the region. It does not make for a good base for exploring the area due to the fact it is not as easy to get in/out of as Wengen or Murren. But if you are looking to hide away in remote-ness it is a good pick!
Personally I would base in Wengen for your short time in the region and perhaps take a visit to Gimmelwald, which is easily done as part of a day when you can also visit Mürren, Trümmelbach Falls, and perhaps the Schilthorn if the weather is clear. It will take about 10 minutes for you to see everything there is to see in Gimmelwald.
