Check out Luzern. It's worth 2 or 3 days. Train ride to Zurich airport is just over an hour.

Spend a couple nights in Bern. We just got back and the river is super fun though I would note that a small modicum of fitness is needed to get out. It's a smidge over an hr on the train from Bern to ZRH (if you're skipping Zurich).

My husband and I truly enjoyed Luzern. That's my pick!!!

Besides Luzern/Lucerne and Bern (and assuming you've considered Zermatt), I would suggest heading to the French-speaking side, with Montreux to Lausanne (Lavaux Vineyards, Lac Leman). The food also shifts, to more of a French-influence, along with the architecture and other elements.

Luzern, with a trip up the Rigi if the weather is fine. French side is off route and adds to travel time.
