I was greatly helped previously on this forum so I'm hoping for some more answers.
We will be Lauterbrunnen or Grindelwald 20-23 April but looking at the Jungfrau website, it seems that apart from trains between Interlaken - Grindelwald - Kleine Scheidegg - Wengen - Lauterbrunnen - Interlaken, the Jungfraujoch Railway and those from Lauterbrunnen to Murren, all others (rail and cableways) will not be operating.
My original plan was on Day 1 to go to Mannlichen from Wengen using the cable car, hike to Kleine Scheidegg before going up to Jungfraujoch. On returning I had planned to take the cablecar from Grindelwald to First (and return).
On Day 2 I planned to go to Schillthorn and visit Trummelbach falls and Staubbach Falls.
So my questions are:
1) is the weather this time of year still ok for hiking (Kleine Scheidegg to Mannlichen plus other trails)?
2) can someone suggest alternatives to my Day 1 schedule considering I won't be able to get to Mannlichen from Wengen and also from Grindelwald to First. So apart from going to Jungfraujoch what else can we do?
3) Suggestions for Day 2 considering the Schillthorn cableway will not be operating
4) What will Lauterbrunnen and Grindelwald be like in this time between Summer and Winter seasons?
Thanks in advance
