On the 16th, the old upper route via Kandersteg-Brig-Visp is much more scenic. The direct route to Visp goes through a new tunnel, fast trip, but the scenery is rather boring inside the tunnel.
If you go via Kandersteg, at least one way, it adds about an hour, but has wonderful scenery on both sides of the short older tunnel.
There is special train called "The Lötschbeger" and it runs once per hour. (Bern to Brig via Spiez and Kandersteg and return.)
Hope you can find time for it.
