>> Would like to find out where are the best viewpoints in Lauterbrunnen, Murren, Wengen and Grindelwald in late February.
Lauterbrunnen - anywhere in the valley really. You can walk along the path through the valley if it is clear of snow, or get the Stechelberg bus from Lauterbrunnen station and get off anywhere you like.
Mürren - anywhere along the road between the railway station and the Stechelberg cable car (which are at opposite ends of the village). You can go up from Lauterbrunnen by cable car and train, walk through the village (about 20 minutes), then go back by cable car to Stechelberg and bus to Lauterbrunnen (or vice versa).
Wengen - lookout near the Swiss Protestant Church (see attached map, and photo taken from there in February 2014)
Grindelwald - I don't know of any specific viewpoint. If no-one else comes up with a better idea, you could just walk up the main street from the station; or take Bus 121 to Oberergletscher and get out at any stop along the way that takes your fancy. This bus climbs above the village. I expect you would have to wait at least an hour for a return bus though.
>> We plan to spend an afternoon roaming these towns with our Swiss Travel Passes to enjoy the villages in the Alps. We prefer not to go up to peaks where we have to pay. So far the plan is Interlaken - Lauterbrunnen - Murren - Wengen - Grindelwald - Interlaken.
If you are only allocating one afternoon to this, you might have trouble fitting it all in before sunset around 6pm. Travel times alone will take almost 3 hours without allowing for walking and sightseeing. You can use the Swiss Timetable to plan it out:
