Hi Susanl and Welcome to MySwissAlps,
You could consider going straight to Lucerne and using that as a base or you could go to Interlaken or Lauterbrunnen from where it is easy to reach Bern or Jungfraujoch.
You don't say what time you are arriving and departing Zurich Airport. That will have a bearing on where you stay.
Lucerne is about 1 hour by train to Zurich Airport. There is not much difference in the train trip from Lucerne to Bern versus Zurich to Bern. Both around 1 hour to 1 hour 20 mins depending on connections.
It is very quick and easy to get around by train. Use the SBB Timetable (www.myswissalps.com/ti metable) to plan your trips.
