In 2015, we were "palaced out" by the time we got to Vienna, and could only handle the Schonbrunn gardens and zoo. We did enjoy:

Art History Museum (Kunsthistorische Museum)

Belvedere for the Klimts and beautiful architecture and gardens

Treasury Museum at the Hofburg - especially for Charlemagne memorabilia. Sissi Museum - not so much

Albertina for more recent art

Military History Museum

Morning Exercises at Spanish Riding School

If you're at all inclined - the Opera is sublime

Just walking around in this beautiful city

If you aren't "palaced out" try to see the inside of Schonbrunn as well as the gardens. I think I enjoyed it more than Versailles. Also agree with the Kunsthistorisches Museum and the treasury. Stroll down Kartner Strasse, window gazing and stopping for some delicious coffee and cake.
