You are leaving one of the most beautiful towns in Switzerland to visit a fairly dismal transport hub?

Best thing I can suggest is if you do this trip, hop off the train in Interlaken, cross the platform, and hop straight on the train to Grindelwald or Lauterbrunnen. From either of these villages you can explore the Bernese Oberland, see magnificent mountain scenery, hike a bit, or just soak up that mountain air. From Lauterbrunnen you could also explore Murren via cable car and train, or Wengen via cog railway.

Westendgaz is exactly correct. Interlaken is not in the Swiss Alps but instead is only a 20 minute train ride away. Change in Interlaken Ost and head toward Lauterbrunnen - THAT'S where you'll see the magnificent views!

It will be better if instead of the day trip from Lucerne, you can manage to stay a night or two in one of the places (lauterbrunnen, Murren etc) mentioned earlier. This way you will be able to view Jungfrau or Schillthorn or both. In day trip from Lucerne, it will be just touch and go for you in Interlaken area.
