Hi Adrian and Ann,

You will see that there is a circular route up to and back from the Jungfraujoch. You can go up via Grindelwald and down via Wengen and Lauterbrunnen (or vice versa).
I have attached a diagram that might help you visualise both routes. Most people go up one way and down the other, as each route has very different scenery - all of which is dramatically beautiful.
My recommendation would be to go up via Grindelwald (despite the fact that you are starting from Lauterbrunnen), and down via Wengen.
This would give you the opportunity to alight at Wengen for a stroll through the village and to the lookout. Here are directions to the lookout:
From the station, head left up the main street lined with shops and hotels (Dorfstrasse), past the Hotel Silberhorn on the right, Männlichen cable car on the right, Hotel Bernerhof on the left, and uphill a bit past the Hotel Schönegg on the right and a chemist on the left. At the top of the hill, you will see a path on the left leading to the Swiss Protestant Church, where there is a lookout and seats. I have attached a map, and a photo showing the view from the lookout.
