This is an excellent time to visit. Regarding attractions have a look at this website:

It all depends on what you like. If you like outdoors its great. If not visit the old town of Bern for a day shopping and soaking up the atmosphere.

It depends on what time of the month you plan on visiting. Early May can be cold and rainy and many of the hotels may not be open for the summer season yet. Late May usually has better weather (there's never any guarantee) and the hotels start opening up for the summer as the month progresses. This past year (2010) was a disaster in May. Wet, cold, rain, even snow in Wengen. It cleared up for the last week of the month but up until then it was lousy.

The attraction of Grindelwald and the other mountain villages in the area is the great scenery and outdoor activities in the summer like hiking and in the winter skiing and other cold weather activities. During May the scenery is still there if the weather is good so taking a couple days to visit places like Lauterbrunnen, Murren, Wengen, and Grindelwald is usuallu a good idea if you get good weather. I would stay in one of the villages instead of Interlaken if acomodation is available. If you get good weather the flowers will be blooming and if not it's only a few minute train ride back down to Interlaken and the lakes.

You should consider staying at Grindelwald instead of Interlaken as these mountain villages offer breathtaking scenery.

For your dates I would definately go for one of the mountain villages over Interlaken. Lauterbrunnen, Wengen and Murren all are beautiful then.
