I am currently staying in Wengen for 4 nights. Today we took the gondola from Wengen up to Mänlichenn where we did the Royal Walk for a nice view. I was looking forward to the hike to Kleine Scheidegg however it was closed due to snow :-(
Because we have the 3-day Jungfrau pass we took the cable car down to Grund, then the train to Grindelwald (yes, it's all included) for lunch. Despite the horrible weather forecast, we had a beautiful day until later when it hailed like crazy at Kliene Scheidegg. We took the train to Eigergletscher (included), back to KS, then walked down toward Wengen but took the train at Wengernalp because by then we were quite cold and wet (despite good rain gear). By the time we got back to Wengen the weather was already better.
Because of the change in weather, we were very happy that we got the 3-day Jungfrau pass. The only downside is that because we have the pass, we are hiking less than we imagined because we want to get our money's worth and the transportation system is so good it's making us lazy! ;-) .
The map is correct and when you get to this area you will be able to pick up a printed map that not only shows the routes but also each hike with a number and the length of time to do them, which I find very useful. There are plenty of beautiful hikes but I do think, despite the price, that it is well worth getting the Jungfrau pass. This allows you to see more areas that you wouldn't necessarily get to if you were just hiking from one place.
Enjoy your trip. We certainly are.
