<<"Thank you Slowpoke for the excellent tips, maps and suggestionon the Männlichen to Kleine Scheidegg trail.">>
You are welcome.
<"" Will go through the document too.">>
Kim is a serious hiker, so if you see something interesting, cross check it with this forum, and a map .
Climbing at high altitude can be tiring and cause you to be short of breath if you are not used to it. I'm am often not ready for that when I first arrive in Switzerland, so I always look at a map for altitude changes. For me, it is noticeable at 1500 meters or above. Above 2000 meters I climb slowly, pausing to catch my breath sometimes. Coming down many hundreds of meters can be hard on your knees, too.

I'll take a look, but it won't be immediateOn your schilthorn day, one option would be to go up to Männlichen early, take the walk to Kleine Scheidegg, ride down to Lauterbrunnen on the cograil train, go from ther to Schilthorn via either of the two approaches (via Stechelberg or Grütschalp). Then, after you come down as far as Mürren, decide if you want to stop at Gimmelwald, ride or possibly walk partway along the road from Stechelberg to Lauterbrunnen or, alternately, take the "train" to Grütschalp and the cableway down to Lauterbrunnen. Use of Mapsearch.CH, as linked before, at the proper zoom magnification, will show you all of the bus stops between Stechelberg and Lauterbrunnen.
There are several places along the way to get lunch.
That will give you lots of spectacular high alpine views and a nice walk, and save the quite pleasant and interesting, but less spectacular choices for the end of the day. Once you see the lay of the land, you'll have a feel for what you want to do of the choices available.
"<<We will start mostly on June 18th so hopefully all trails/roads are open by then.">>
Should be good.
Keep in touch via this forum as your trip gets close, especially in May.. Arno, Annika and others have a better knowledge of the weather and trail conditions conditions, and can suggest tourist offices to e-mail. The one in Wengen would be a good start.
