I think Munich is your best option, then 2 hr train to Salzburg. The Vienna airport is a smaller one, so you will most likely have fewer convenient options into/out of Vienna by air.
Safe travels!

Although I don't particularly expect June to be a rough COVID period, if things go wacko shortly before your trip, you might prefer not to have a second country in the mix, which might be a reason to give Vienna serious consideration as your landing point.

But- with Vienna you will most likely transfer through another country, which COULD be an issue. Last Sept, 2019, we had to cancel the Italy portion of our trip because we transferred thru Heathrow, and at that time, we would have been required to quarantine in Italy as a result. Other countries did not have that requirement regarding airport transfers [in early Sept.]
Just so many unknown variables! Good luck!

thank you for your thoughts.....i just received a response to inquiry to American Airlines...turns out they have currently suspended travel to Austria...only get there using partner airlines...i assume if this mess improves i will be able to fly into Salzburg...may be a good reason to stay in the states again this year
