To travel between these places you can use Bayern Tickets (EUR 29). A day ticket good for up to 5 persons travelling together. Covers all regional trains in Bavaria and to/from Salzburg Hbf. Covers also the buses from Memmingen Airport to Memmingen train station. And also the bus #840 from Salzburg Hbf to Berchtesgaden. Albeit alone for this trips 2 single tickets (EUR 4,90) will be less (you don't need any tickets for under 6 year olds).
Bayern Ticket is valid
Mo-Fr: from 9am till 3am next day
Sa,Su: from midnight till 3am next day
Start: Memmingen Allgäu Airport, Memmingerberg
Destination: Salzburg Hbf
Destination: Berchtesgaden Hbf
and select as means of transport "only local transport" if you want to travel on a Bayern Ticket.
Thanks abalada for the tip on Bayern Ticket. Unfortunately our travel isn't all in one day.
Day 1: Memmingen to Salzburg
Day 2: Salzburg
Day 3: Salzburg to Berchtesgaden
Day 4 : Berchtesgaden to Memmingen
On the link you sent, the minimal fare for the first leg is shown as EUR 21 for the whole family. I think it makes sense to go with this ticket and then for Days 3 & 4, go with the EUR 29 Bayern ticket. Are we correct in our comprehension ? And would we be able to purchase Bayern ticket in Salzburg?

EUR 21 is the price for a Bayern Ticket Nacht (night). Which is valid from 6pm till 6am (Sa+Su 7am).
As said single ticket Salzburg to Berchtesgaden using the #840 bus is EUR 4,90 per adult. Thus EUR 9,80 for all of you together. This is a zone-to-zone (city-to-city) ticket covering all mean of public transport (regional trains, S-Bahn, buses). It's just that the #840 bus goes through less zones than the train from Salzburg to Berchtesgaden.
As soon you check into your hotel in Berchtesgaden you will get a guest card which entitles you to free rides on the buses in and around Berchtesgaden.
> And would we be able to purchase Bayern ticket in Salzburg?
Yes - but see above.
Thanks abalada...it is very clear now. Appreciate your help.
