Personally I love Salzburg - been about 5 or 6 times. Be warned though, eating out is very expensive, although there is a McDonalds in Getreidegasse if you get desperate!
I wouldn't say it's baby friendly as such, but the people are very friendly and helpful and will help you with buggy/highchairs etc. There are a lot of cobbled streets and uneven paths etc (obviously, as it's a very old city) so you may want to have a careful think about what type of buggy/pushchir to take. I'd take a cheap folding buggy and a good sling!
I went to Vienna for a day trip years ago and found it much more cosmopolitan than Salzburg and still pretty expensive. Maybe someone else has been more recently and can advise?

Vienna definitely - very cosmopolitan, lovely cafes, museums, architecture, even the trams are fun to ride on. Salzburg is fine if you like the Sound of Music and Mozart - I found it a little wearing after a while! We went pre-kids, so can't comment on baby-friendlyness, but the Europeans are generally pretty good. Enjoy yourselves whatever you do - getting away anywhere with a 5 month old sounds good!
