Hi PeterZ -
Why would you choose not leave your luggage at Lauterbrunnen when you first arrive, and then have generous time for the Falls and a walk? That will take at least 40 minutes and maybe as much as an hour of back and forth out of the afternoon's travels.
Note that sunset in Interlaken- the closest city that I could find to Lauterbrunnen - - on the 12th is at 646 PM.
Twilight extends a bit beyond that, but the Lauterbrunnen Valley has steep sides and will likely be dark sooner. If you leave the falls at 5 PM, you will be near the end of daylight and it will sunset in Wengen when you get back up there. Brighter up there than down in the valley, of course. Still, the high mountains to the south and west do block the sun.
