Moderate hiking suggestions while in Wengen for Three nights

We are finally here! We have been traveling for a couple of weeks now and this is our finally destination. Looking for suggestions for moderate hikes around the area. We can travel to Murren also. We have two full days here.

Thank you!

One of my favorite hikes in the area is Mannlichen to Kleine Scheidegg. Take the gondola up from Wengen and ride the train back down from Kleine Schiedegg. I've never had the time to do the lookout which is the trail up to the left when you leave the cable car station. I'm not sure I would consider this moderate. I'm old, overweight and not in terrific shape and I can do it easily. It's mostly flat but the scenery is breathtaking.

Number one hike for a sunny day (morning) is definitely Mannlichen to Kleine Scheidegg. That's mostly level, about 1.5 hours, and can extend it 25 min by taking a right at Kleine Scheidegg and pretty much following the tracks until you get to Wengernalp station where you can pick up the next train down.

Next I'd go to Lauterbrunnen, cable car up to Grutschalp and hike towards Murren, where the trail pretty much follows the tracks. There will be outstanding views of Wengen. Fairly level, about 2 hours. Should pass by the cheese-making building near Winteregg.
If the above was done in the morning and you are in Murren, or if in Murren another time, take the Almendhubel funicular to the top, take a left and walk towards Schiltalp then down towards Spielbodenalp and then back to down to Murren. A bit hilly but mostly downhill since the funicular did the uphill work for you. 2.5 hours or so.
For a more dreary day: walk from Lauterbrunnen down the valley to Trummelbach Falls. 45 min each way.

In addition to the very good suggestions above, there is First to Bachalpsee and return. Fabulous long lift from Grindelwald to First!
