I plan to visit Switzeland for four days visiting natural sites like Jungfraujoch, Titlis etc. My wife has difficulty of walking long distance. I am planning to take her by wheel chair. Is these places are wheel chair access friendly?

For example, you'll definitely be able to enjoy the views from the platform at Titlis; some other activities such as the Ice Flyer and cliff walk won't be possible.
