Hi Walkfan and Welcome to MySwissAlps,
Don't drive. Swiss public transport is the best. See www.myswissalps.com/ca rversustrain
Use the Swiss Train Timetable (www.myswissalps.com/ti metable). If you haven’t used it before it will pay to read the instructions on that page before delving into the timetable.
Given your desire to see as much scenery as possible I would go Basel to Zermatt via Kandersteg, Zermatt to Andermatt to Lucerne, Lucerne to Jungfrau Region and then back to Germany.
Stopover in Zermatt, Lucerne and Wengen if you can afford 3 nights.
Between Zermatt and Andermatt you can take Glacier Express train or regular trains on same route.
From Andermatt you could train to Flüelen and then catch a boat to Lucerne. It is a fantastic trip with wonderful scenery and par to the Gotthard Panorama Express route.
A 3-day Swiss Travel Pass would probably work well for you.
Any terms or places you don't know or understand above just use the search facility top right on this site.
