Hi Cattro and welcome to MySwissAlps!
Depending on ticket costs, I would usually recommend taking the train from Paris to Switzerland. You would first arrive in Geneva or Basel depending on what town you want to first visit.
If ticket prices are much lower than the train then by all means fly. Bern doesn't get many flights (small airport) so you will probably find flights to Geneva or Zurich.
Another note, is that late March, early April is still ski season here in Switzerland (for mountain trips) it ends usually around the first week of April. So you will be able to head up into the mountains but snow will stop you from doing much walks/hikes.
The Jungfrau region is where you will want to head to (Luzern, I think is great. But for only 3/4 days I would stay in the Jungfrau region only - see activity options for this region here).
A town like Lauterbrunnen or Wengen are very popular to stay at. Trips from there to Jungfraujoch or Schilthorn will be no problem. It is a train you take to Jungfraujoch and cable cars get you to Schilthorn.
Be sure to read through the links above to read more about tickets, overviews and how to get to each destination.
As mentioned about getting to Switzerland, I would also train to Italy (trains are really the best option in Switzerland). You can use the Swiss railways timetable to plan out the trips into and out of (and around) Switzerland.
For an overview of Swiss rail pass options click here, and if you need some help picking the best rail pass click here.
At that time of year, regional passes for the Jungfrau area aren't valid (summer only) so the country-wide Swiss Travel Pass is what you should consider I think.
I hope that helps you get started on your trip plans. Let us know if you have more questions!
