Is there any point seeing the Shonbrunn palace or the Imperial Palace from the outside because i am not that interested in art and museums etc..?

Place is HUUUUGGGGGEEEEE I don't think going inside is worth it unless you care about ancient palaces....but outdoors is very nice.

Nice.
You can order meals at Chabad/resturant.
Go to the great synagogue for a beautiful shul and davening.

Seconded. Meals at Alef Alef were great, and reasonably priced IMO.
Great synagogue was beautiful - but remember to email your passport in advance. Security is (understandably) strict.
There is an Eruv around almost the whole (central) city

i was actually blown away by the level of security surrounding the shul shabbos morning. Iím talking secret service style guys with ear pieces and guns making a perimeter around the area staring u down like ur a terrorist and Iím not exaggerating. Is that so necessary in Vienna?

Yes, there was a major bombing there in the past.
