Hi Jascheong, welcome to MySwissAlps,
Zermatt to Brig is indeed the Glacier Express route, but I would not take the actual Glacier Express. You can travel by any of the local trains and avoid the reservation fee for that 1 hour ride.
From Brig, you can take the local train via Goppenstein and Kandersteg to Spiez, and change for Interlaken there. That's the most scenic route. If you just want the quickest way to Interlaken you do not stay on the train until Brig but get off in Visp and change to the InterCity train to Spiez there. It crosses a long tunnel, so no views there. All options are in the timetable.
Brig and Zermatt are very different places. Brig is a centrally located larger town, near but not in the mountains. You can go to lots of different places there, also based on the weather forecast. Zermatt is isolated, car free, and in the mountains. A stunning place, but you'll have to focus on the local trails and activities there. Please see:
