Hi hi,
I am planning 2 nights (6,7 Dec) at Grindelwald. I would like to go up "top of the Europe" from my accommodation in Grindelwald in the morning of 8 Dec (say 7am) and return for my luggage at the accommodation around 1 pm before proceeding to Lucerne. Will I have enough time at Jungfraujoch to do everything if i planned it this way? Thanks in advance.

Hello jo, and welcome! Yes, you should manage to spend a few hours up at the Jungfraujoch before returning to Grindelwald. The trip Grindelwald-Jungfraujoch takes about 1h30. You could catch the earliest train at 7.17am and arrive at the Jungfraujoch at 8.52am. You should get back by 11 or 11.30am in order to return to Grindelwald in time. Specifics can be found in the Swiss timetable.
