Train Itinerary from Germany/Austria/Switzerland Trip

I am going to book rail next month and would like suggestions on which trains to take. We would like to travel first class or the next step below also. Here is the itinerary.

July 11th: Rail from Munich, Germany to Salzburg, Austria
July 14th: Rail from Salzburg, Austria to Lucerne, Switzerland
July 16th: Rail from Lucerne, Switzerland to Wengen, Switzerland
July 19th: Rail from Wengen, Switzerland to Zurich

I know we might have to go through Zurich on July 14th. Also, traveling to Wengen, we will have to go through Interlaken/Lauterbrunnen Valley and onto Wengen.

Thank you for the tips in advance

Munich-Salzburg can be done with a Bayern Ticket if you leave after 9 am and take the Meridian train. 31 EUR 2nd class (perfectly fine) or 56 EUR 1st class. That is the total for 2. I'm assuming "we" means 2 people.

Salzburg is 123 EUR for a Sparschiene advance purchase nonrefundable 1st class for 2. Ticket bought at

If you are planning on taking lifts in Wengen, you consider buying Half Fare Cards for 120 CHF per person. This would also give you discounts for the Zurich Luzern leg as well. Trains go minimum once an hour in Switzerland, so just buy a ticket and get on the train. No reservations.
