My personal choice is the Euroairport at Bâle-Mulhouse-Freiburg. I always find the best fares to this airport and I like it for its relatively small size. I rent a car at the French end as I find the rates are much better. The only drawback is that your car may not have a vignette required for travel on Swiss autoroutes. As you drive into Switzerland from the airport there are people at the border checking for a valid vignette, and if your car does not have one, you are directed to the side and your buy one for CHF 40. A great deal.
Are you bringing a GPS ? I bring one just in case my rental car does not have one. If you do have one, you can enter Berne and off you go. As you approach Berne, you can enter Lauterbrunnen and on you go. I sometimes enter intermediate points in order to ensure that my GPS chooses the route I prefer.
No GPS ? Then just follow the signs for Bern (you'll see Bern on the signs as you leave Bâle) and then Thun and Interlaken. As you approach Interlaken on the A8, watch for exit signs to Wilderswil and Lauterbrunnen.
