Great advise from Kim11. My son and I did this in late July 2014 when there was much more than normal rain and had to revise the itinerary quite a bit. First day involved Gondola from Engelberg to Trubsee then hiked through Jochpass, Engstlenalp, Tannalp, and was planning to hike down to Meiringen but due to rain and cloud cover we took the cable car from Planplatten. That was one full day.
Second day we planned to do Meiringen to Grindelwald but heavy rains had the Reichenbachfalls funicular closed and hiking this section wasn't easily doable. So we used the Post bus. The falls were absolutely roaring! That made for a short day 2. The many options is what I love about hiking CH. We ended up going as far as Kandersteg on the Via Alpina then dropped into Leukerbad for some much needed spa and massage therapy. You are in for a great trip!
