3 nights in Jungfrau and 3 nights in Luzern Itinerary suggestion


Me and my wife (in late 30s) are travelling to Switzerland on 2 July from Paris and below is the itinerary we are planning.
5 July - Reach Grindelwald or Wengen by 17:00 and overnight stay, please suggest which place to choose to stay?
6 July - Jungfrajouch excursion if weather is fine , otherwise whats the plan B?
7 July - Schilthron/Murren visit if weather is fine, otherwise whats the plan B?
8 July - Checkout and take Golden Pass route to Luzern and reach by 14:00 and do any guided citiy walk tour (Can i do 4-5 hours activity/trip in Wengen/Grindelwald on this day and reach Luzern late by 20:00/21:00 ?
9 July - Mt Rigi visit along with Lucerne lake cruise.
10 July- Does Mt Titlis make sense (if already done Jungfrajouch) or any other alternate options like Bern visit or any other day trip
11 July- Start early morning to Zurich Airport to catch 11:00 AM flight.

Please suggest regarding my itinerary (what I asked), should I remove one night in Luzern and add it to Wengen/Grindelwald ?

Do you have the Rick Steves' guide for Switzerland? It will answer many of your questions and most likely inform you about factors you haven't thought about yet.

Train schedules are at SBB.CH, so you can determine if your July 5, 8, and 11 plans are feasible.

Personally, the Luzern area left us underwhelmed after we'd been to the Jungfrau region. I'd spend more time in Wengen.

We're going to the BO in July and decided to stay in Wengen over Grindelwald because it's up on the mountain and easier to get over to the Murren side. Plus, we have a car to park in Lauterbrunnen.
