Thanks for joining My Swiss Alps.
Welcome to the forum.
Unfortunately, mid-March is still winter in the Swiss mountains, and, in fact, is barely into Spring at the lower elevations.. In the high Alps, such a s near the Jungfrau, trails are not snow-free until mid-June, and Alpine hiking is at its best after July 1.
During snow (read-"skiing") season, selected high altitude trails are groomed for hiking. Sometime in Spring, hopefully after you are there, those trails are no longer maintained because snow conditions ( and trail safety) deteriorate. I don't know exactly when that happens. Arno or Annika or Lucas probably have more details. Then, they reopen in early to mid-June, and stay open until sometime in October, more or less.
Here are some useful sources for informatip about hiking:
