>> Ok the hikes look great and I'd like to go sledging as well. Both options would be perfect. I was looking into tickets now for hiking and sledging but its so confusing. How does that work for 2 adults, a baby and a 4 year old? do we get day passes or just tickets for individual things? what does the family card give you?
Hi Meredith. Depending on your plans, you could buy individual tickets, get a Hiking and Sledging Pass (available for between 2 and 7 days), a Grindelwald-First Sledging Day Pass or a Kleine Scheidegg-Wengen Sledging Day Pass. As you are staying in Grindelwald, you could get your tickets or pass from Grindelwald Railway station. There are no prices listed for children under 6, so I assume they are free.
Here are some links describing the various passes, with details of routes covered and prices, and a price list for normal tickets to help you work out which option is cheapest for your particular plans.

>> As for the cogtrains, cablecars- any suggestions on those to get out of the cold for a few and see some sites?
Trains are heated, but cable cars and gondolas aren't! Mountaintop restaurants always provide a cosy retreat though!
I have attached a panorama map showing the various modes of transport in the Jungfrau Region. If you have a Hiking and Sledging Pass, you can have unlimited rides for free on those shown with a solid line (with a couple of exceptions for late afternoon/evening). On those shown with a dotted line, you get a 50% discount, i.e. between Eigergletscher and Jungfraujoch, between Mürren and Schilthorn.
Before going up to a mountain top, find out what time the last service down leaves!
I hope you find this useful.
