Just a comment along with those of FREDRGS about things to explore from Grindelwald and how much time is involved: We stayed in Grindelwald 3 nights in June 2012. It took a full day to do the following: walk down to the gondola near Grindelwald Grund that took us up to Mannlichen (great views of the Grindelwald area), where we switched to the tram down to Wengen (precipitous drop down into the Lauterbrunnen Valley - I think more beautiful than Yosemite here in California), then we caught the rail down to Lauterbrunnen, the tram up to Grutschalp, the train to Murren, and finally the tram ride up to the Schilthorn and the Piz Gloria restaurant for only about 30 minutes (another great view and of James Bond fame - Google it), and then back down to Lauterbrunnen, caught the train going up to Kleine Scheidegg and then caught the last train back down to Grindelwald. A very long day on public transportation, missed some transportation connections, but very rewarding. Don't miss the Jungfraujoch - expensive but well worth it. Have lunch in Kleine Scheidegg staring up at the Eiger, Munch and Jungfrau. Would love to go back.
