Grindelwald for an afternoon?


I am going to be in Interlaken in mid-April and am looking for a half-day trip to make from Interlaken. I have heard Grindelwald has great scenery, but is it worth a quick trip that time of year (seems many things are closed for winter and not yet open for summer)? Just looking for something a bit more scenic than Interlaken to walk around and enjoy nice mountain views, perhaps a pub or two. Also, is the train ride from Interlaken-Grindelwald scenic? Thank you for your help!

The train ride isn't especially scenic from Interlaken to Grindelwald. I think I would try Wengen instead. Mid April should still have some of the ski crowd around so there should be some activity and the scenery is better from Wengen than in Grindelwlad. The ride up the mountain is prettier too.
