Grindelwald 4 Days Itinerary?

My wife & I are intending to travel to Switzerland next December 2018 & this is our plan:

Day 1: Trümmelbach Falls, Lauterbrunnen Valley Waterfalls

Day 2: First Cliff walk & Eiger Trail at Grinderwald

Day 3: Royal Walk & The Wetterhorn at Grinderwald

Day 4: Maennlichen Romantikweg at Grinderwald

Is this possible in 4 days?

Are the above attractions within short distances by public bus or train (meaning within 1 hour of travel)?

Is December having snow so we can ski?

Thanks for advice.

IT looks like you have planned a summer trip and trying to do this in winter. The hiking trails are summer trails not necessarily open in winter. There are winter hiking trails but AFAIK not the ones you list. Hiking in winter is much harder than in summer due to the snow and you will need good winter equipment.

When are you visiting? Cable cars and gondolas close for maintenance and only start opening at the beginning of the ski season, some not until the middle of December.

If you do not already ski you will need a week of lessons to learn and be safe.

It's good you are planning early.
