Is there a wiki on Vienna? I need a rundown on the restaurants there (what is good?) Also I am there for a a day and half so my itinerary includes the schonbrun palace and zoo, the imperial apartments and treasury, the  Kunsthistorisches museum, judenplatz, and possibly the  belvedere. Am i missing something worth while to see? Should I cut anything out of my itinerary?

You can / will most likely make it but with kid it'll be a bit tight and not relaxing.

I recommend the Park Hyatt Vienna. Just don't drop your phone on their front steps, like I did recently. 😩

Such separate and different cities. I find shabbes in Vienna to be beautiful. Can have a beautiful hotel, minyan, food right in the inner city which is magnificent to walk around and stroll around on a shabbes afternoon.
