Some hiking reference from trip advisor if you need

At a minimum, take the train up to Wengen, then the cable car to Mannlichen. From their take the easy walk to Kleine Scheidegg. It the weather is good you can take the Junfraubahn from there.

Take the cable car from Lauterbrunnen to Grutschalp, then walk to Murren. You can then take a series of cable cars up to Schilthorn. On the way back, take the cable car to Murren and then walk down to Gimmelwald, then the cable car to Stechelberg. From Stechelberg, you can take the scenic walk in the valley back to Lauterbrunnen, or take the bus back.

One of my favorites is the train from Wilderswill to Schynige Platte, and then hike the Panoramaweg trail.
