Hi Nickveen! I'm afraid your plans aren't realistic. If you want to travel from Berlin to a Swiss destination and head onto Milan all in one day, without an overnight stay in Switzerland, you won't even make it to either the Jungfraujoch or the Titlis, let alone both plus a scenic train. Please refer to the timetable; all traveling times, including trips from and to bordering countries, can be found there. It will help you estimate whether your plans are doable timewise.
You may consider getting a night train (CityNightLine). If you leave Berlin in the evening, you can be up at the Jungfraujoch around noon the next day and then continue your trip to Milano. It would more relaxed though to book an overnight in a Swiss town such as Basel, Zurich, Lucerne or Interlaken. That would give you a full day, or at least a full morning, to enjoy a scenic trip such as the Titlis or Jungfraujoch. The most obvious route to Milan would be via Domodossola or Chiasso; the Bernina Express from Chur would be a long detour.
Depending on your exact travel plans, it may be worth looking into a rail pass. If you plan all traveling in Switzerland on one day, look into the Swiss Half Fare Card. If an overnight stay is included, take a look at the Swiss Card.
