Yes there is a multitude of options for you but you'll find no matter what that taking trains to get around is quite easy. Be sure to use the Swiss railways timetable to plan out all your trips between towns and mountains. It will by default show you the fastest routes available.
The Swiss Travel Pass will allow you to travel on most trains around Switzerland at no extra charge, except special panoramic trains like the Glacier Express (where you must pay for a reservation).
You could also do this route at the end (after Zermatt) on your way to Vienna, if you are taking the train to Vienna that is.
Zermatt is a lovely town worth at least two nights - after that I would focus on the Jungfrau region as others have suggested!
Towns like Zurich and Geneva aren't particularly impressive (in my opinion) unless you are interested in museums or just a bigger city atmosphere (though not that big). I'd save them for another trip or just one night after arriving or departure.
