Lucerne to Jungfrau in one day?

We had made plans to stay in Wengen for two nites. It will be a sunny clear day when we set from Lucerne to Wengen, but the next day is rainy with snow showers. Can we take an early train from Lucerne to Wengen, drop off our luggage at the hotel, and proceed to Jungfrau on the same day to take advantage of the sunny weather? Can one make the trip: Lucerne to Wengen to Jungfrau and back to Wengen for the nite on one day?

Also, what are our options to spend the next rainy day around Wengen? We will have a Swisspass, so we could explore around or stay in town.

Feedback will be much appreciated

Are you the same poster arriving on a sunny day and planning Pilatus? Weather forecasts are advisory and approximate at the best of times, in the mountains they are a possible guide to what you might expect. In general the forecasts may be close on what weather you get, but very flexible on when you will get it.You need to see what turns up on the day.

You can do Lucerne, Jungfraujoch, Wengen and get back for the night. Again my advices is as on the previous post, check the timetables on www.sbb.ch/en.

Weather is unpredictable. So don't make your plans according to weather forecast which is week or few days away. Jungfrau imo is best seen during the morning. However, in your case I suggest when you reach Wengen check with the ticket desk on the station if tickets to Junfrau are still available and if the weather on the top is still good. They have a tv at Wengen station showing you how the top of europe looks like from the camera they have installed. In August if weather is 100% perfect tickets are usually sold out by the evening - only 5K max tickets are sold each day for Junfracuch.
