>> I know we would like to travel up Jungfrau if the weather permits but I'm gathering that there are various routes to take up and down.
Yes, you can go up via Grindelwald and down via Wengen and Lauterbrunnen (or vice versa). The scenery is stunning on both routes, and quite different - see attached diagram of the route.
>> Would it be overdoing it to go up Mt Schilthorn as well or should we only do that if the weather is not suitable for Jungfrau?
I don't think it would be overdoing it - both are different and stunning. However, with such a short time in the area, you might have other priorities.
You can see some photos of both the Jungfraujoch and the Schilthorn attached to my post of Mar 1, 2017 - 10:12 PM (and the following post) on this page:
Another option to consider is the train from Wilderswil to Schynige Platte. Superb views from there too, and a wonderful steep ride on the mountain railway to get there.
