Is it too much for a day to travel like this?

Hi all, I am Doris from Hong Kong and is planning for a trip to Switzerland in the 3rd week of August.

We will be staying at Interlaken. Is it too much for us to do everything in 1 day:

Interlaken (setting off early) => Grindelwald => Grindelwald Grund => Cable car to Mannlichen => trail from Mannlichen to Kleine Scheidegg for ~1.5 hours => Jungfrajoch => Kleine Scheidegg => Lauterbruunen => Interlaken (plan to get back there for dinner)

Thanks!

Hi Doris and welcome to the Swiss Forum and Trip Advisor!

Yes, this is doable if you leave early. Suggest you go up to Jungfrau first, if the weather is clear!! Weather can change quickly in the Alps. So if it is clear in the morning go up to the Top first!. You can decide about the walk after.

I know many prefer to stay in Interlaken. Would encourage you to at least consider staying at Wengen or Lauterbrunnen or Murren. These are small swiss towns in the midst of absolute stunning beauty! Have a wonderful trip!

Totally agree with Marb E

It´s doable if you start early and if the weather is nice. If it´s raining or with mist, think it twice before going up to the Jungfraujoch as the views will be very limited.

Just wanted to alert you that when you head for Grindelwald, you will do so from Interlaken Ost (not West). The train you will take, splits into two parts. One part goes to Lauterbrunnen, and the other part does to Grindewald. So be sure to get on the right part of the train! Enjoy! Hope you are lucky enought to get good weather!
