Hi bubbybains,

Oct.2 - The Museum of Transport will close by 5, so go there first.

Oct 4: Sounds like a good day. No time for much else really. If you want other ideas look here: https://www.myswissalp es

Oct.8: If you are doing two lake cruises and Harder Kulm I think your day is full. :) Schynige Platte is another option: https://www.myswissalp

Oct.9: You won't have time for all that. The cheese and chocolate factories are easy to do together. See what the time is like after to see if you can visit Chillon or Vevey.

Oct.10 = It looks like the Riviera Card gets you as far as Vevey roughly. ntreux/hotels

From there you'll need a ticket to Paris. https://www.myswissalp nce

Hi Bubbybains,

I'm certainly not an expert like some of the other contributors on this site but it seems more logical to be to do the hike from Mannlichen to Kleine Scheidegg and then do the Jungfrau all on the same day. Otherwise, you will be in Kleine Scheidegg both Oct. 5th and 6th.

Thanks Lucas and Pickergel for replies. so if i start roughly 1pm from wengen to Mannlichen cable car and then hike to K.S and then train to jungfrau and come back by train to wengen, so you think its doable and will be enough time. How long the hike from mannlichen to KS?

Or can i do mannlichen hike and jungfrau next day october 6th and go for grindelwald and first activities on 5th oct?? i am very confused

yes that can be done - the earlier the start the better though. The hike is around 1.5 hours.
