It might be worth considering the Eurail Austria pass, or indeed the Eurail global pass, as that would cover Germany, Austria and Switzerland .
Austria's public transport system is similar to Switzerland - efficient and co-ordinated, so Munchen - Salzburg and Salzburg - Halstatt are convenient railway journeys.
From Halstatt to Switzerland, I recommend you aim to connect into the Railjet express services that link Wien (Vienna) to Zurich. Hallstatt to Zurich is possible in one day, and all the routes you traverse will be scenic through Alpine or pre-Alpine landscape. You can leave Hallstatt at 09.20 change at Attnang Puchheim and Salzburg, and from Salzburg take train RJX162 to arrive in Zurich at 17.20.
