Do you want fast or scenic connection.
On scale of fast to scenic go:
1. Zurich Flughafen to Zermatt (no via - the SBB Timetable will give you the fastest route)
2. Add via Kandersteg (You will then travel between Spiez and Brig on the Regio-Express Lötschberger train over the traditional, more than 100 year old mountain route, giving you a wonderful view along the impressive peaks and down into the Rhone Valley. The 1-hour faster route via Visp takes you through the fairly lengthy Lötschberg Base Tunnel with rather limited views.)
3. Add via Lucerne, Interlaken and Kandersteg
4. Add via Chur, Andermatt (for Glacier Express route). Actual Glacier Express (GEX) requires paid seat reservations (on top of STP) but you are probably too late to get a seat but can follow same route on regular trains.
