Your trip has several legs and travels through different regions. For the first stretch, it won't really matter what side of the train you are on, although sitting on the left side of the train when you arrive at Bern gives you a slightly better view of the old city. Bern is not a 'through' station, so you will see the Old City again when you leave. From Bern to interlaken, the left side of the train has the best view of Lake Thun, then from Interlaken Ost to Grindelwald, you will definitely need to be on the right hand side of the train, or you will miss out on seeing the panorama of the mountains revealing themselves.
Something to be careful of, trains leaving for Grindelwald decouple at Zweilütschinen (2 stops out of Interlaken Ost) - one half goes to Grindelwald and the other half goes to Lauterbrunnen, so make sure you are on the correct section of the train.
