    The way to get from A to B by public transport in Switzerland, for any A or B, can always be found on www.sbb.ch.

    There are several possibilities. One of them has you take part of the Glacier Express route...
    But my suggestion would be to take the train to Locarno - Domodossola. That way you get to do the Centovalli line, which is quite scenic. If you are travelling on a Swiss Pass this route is included (even though it does pass via Italy).

    Generally, the quickest way by train from Lugano to Brig is to take the route KVB indicated. Take a local train to Giubiasco, change to a train (traveling in the opposite direction) towards Locarno. From Locarno, take the Centovalli Railway to Domodossola, finally changing for a northbound train to Brig. Despite this route going through Italy, it is entirely covered by Swisspass.

    To get detailed timetable information, either visit sbb.ch, or inquire at the SBB travel office at the Lugano train station.

    Hope this helps!
