First, you have not stated when you will be in Switzerland for this visit. You say you have been to Switzerland "many times" before but do not mention where you have visited on previous visits (except for Vevey and Montreux). Kandersteg and Lauternbrunnen and lakes Thoune and Brienz are all in one part of one canton, Berne. If I was in Switzerland, even after many previous visits, I'm not sure I would want to spend two full weeks only in Kandersteg and Lauterbrunnen, as lovely as they both are, unless my only desire is to ascend some peaks and do a lot of hiking. If you are interested in Romandie, the area Rockoyster refers to as "the French side", the entire shore of the lake (Léman in French), as well as Gruyères, Fribourg, Morat, Lausanne and even Neuchâtel are there to discover. The lake cruises on the Léman are very scenic, and you can even go over to the side that is in France. Yvoire is a place over there not to be missed.
May I assume that you have not been much in the north or north-east of Switzerland ? If so, a visit to the Rheinfall in Neuhausen and the very photogenic town of Stein am-Rhein could easily be done in a day. But I would not do this as a day trip from Lauterbrunnen. Close to Konstanz is the Island of Mainau. Well worth a visit !
