Hi all,

I have created a draft itinerary for August and looking for some advice.

I will be staying in Grindelwald 3 nights from 11 - 14 August 2019 and then head towards Austria.

Day 1:

Arrive Zurich

Lucerne

Go to Grindelwald

Dinner

Day 2:

Grindelwald to Kleine Scheidegg

Kleine Scheidegg to Jungfraujoch

Jungfraujoch to Lauterbrunnen

Lauterbrunnen to Wengen via cable car

Wengen Village to Mannlichen Gondola

Restaurant Grindelwaldblick

Take train from Klein Scheidegg back to Grindelwald

Day 3:

Grindelwald to Lauterbrunnen

Lauterbrunnen to Grutschalp cable car

Grutschalp cable car to Murren

Murren to Shilthorn

Schilthorn to Stechelberg

Stelchelberg to Trummelbach Falls

Trummelbach Falls to Lauterbrunnen

Lauterbrunnen to Grindelwald

Day 4:

Grindelwald to Kandersteg

Kandersteg to Lake Oeschinen

Lake Blausee

Back to Grindelwald

Alternative Day 4:

Grindelwald to Harder Klum

Harder Klum to Lake Brienz

Back to Grindelwald

A few questions:

1) Am I trying to fit too much in each days? is it doable?

2) Is it worth it to go to Oeschinen Lake from Grindelwald?

3) For alternative day 4, any other nearby place that it must see that I can add in?

Thank you in advance.

Hello JiniD and Welcome to MySwissAlps,

1) Your itinerary for sure sounds do-able. To check in detail about traveling times and connections for your stay please use the timetable below, a very helpful tool for planning:
- www.myswissalps.com/ti metable

2) This is a difficult question to answer, as the opinion if it's worth is it very individual. Traveling times are around 2 hours, and this is what you can expect there:
- www.oeschinensee.ch/en /

3) There are of course nearer places to consider visiting on that day, see:

Hello JiniD,

Just a small correction to your plan for Day 2: As you descend from Jungfraujoch to Lauterbrunnen you go via Wengen, so there is no need to travel from Lauterbrunnen to Wengen later on. Also, Lauterbrunnen to Wengen is via train and not cable car. Since you are already planning to visit Lauterbrunnen on Day 3, I would suggest the following places on day 2:

Grindelwald to Kleine Scheidegg


Kleine Scheidegg to Jungfraujoch

Jungfraujoch to Wengen

and then your original schedule ie,

Wengen Village to Mannlichen Gondola

Restaurant Grindelwaldblick

Take train from Klein Scheidegg back to Grindelwald

Regards

Shamik
