Advance reservations recommended?

I will be in Salzburg 10 - 14 and I am wondering if there are places or sites for which I should make reservations in advance to avoid crowds or closings? Thank you.

Most of the tourist attractions do not require advance booking

I understand that they may not require advance reservations. However, I will be there in peak tourist season so my question is meant to ask if there are sites that, with an advance reservation, one could avoid waiting in long lines?

My advise would be that if you know you are for sure going to someplace on a specific day purchase your tickets in advance. 1) they are sometimes cheaper online and 2) avoid possible lines. That is my plan of attack where ever I go.

The short answer is ---NO. Generally there aren't long queues for anywhere in Salzburg and buying a ticket in advance to jump the queue isn't the norm.

I also can't remember any place that is cheaper if a ticket is bought in advance, but of course I do not know all attractions and their ticketing policies.
