You could also take the train from Grindlewald to Kleine Scheidegg and then onto Wengen and Lauterbrunnen.

The fastest way is train: Grindelwald - Zweilütschinen - Lauterbrunnen, about 50 minutes!!!

That is if you do'nt have a car.

The trains from Interlaken to Lauterbrunnen and Grindelwald are coupled together till Zweilütschinen and get separated there. So it is the cheapest and fastest way, as indicated, to change in Zweilütschinen. You will have to get into the correct part of the train coming from Interlaken, otherwise you end up where you came from :-) Better ask the conductor.

The trains over the Kleine Scheidegg would take much more time, run to a less dense schedule and the last train up goes around 17:00 as opposed to about 23:00 to Zweilütschinen.

My thinking is - it depends on what else you are doing in your trip to the area. For cheapest and fastest take Rister's route & change at ZWN. If you're not planning any other 'upward' trips from Grindelwald, then choose either of JohnW1952 or your cable-car route - it's worth (if the weathers ok) paying to experience the heights once at least.
