For maximum enjoyment I would suggest viewing Legend of the Galactic Heroes in the following order:
1. First few episodes of the main series (about 3 or 4 episodes)
2. My Conquest is the Sea of Stars
3. Overture to a New War
4. Re-watch the main series from the very beginning to the very end, uninterrupted
5. A Hundred Billion Stars; A Hundred Billion Lights
6. Spiral Labyrinth
Notice that Golden Wings does not have a place on my list. Personally I feel that Golden Wings should not be watched at all as it only serves to take away from the overall positive experience and adds virtually nothing to the LotGH universe. But if you must, then it has been suggested that you should watch it after episode 54 of the main series (production order).
I have already received some feedback from a couple people who have tried out this order on their first viewing and they responded with positive feedback. They said that by first starting with the main series rather than starting with My Conquest is the Sea of Stars, it propably enhanced their experience to the fullest because the beginning of the main series serves as the most powerful introduction to the LotGH universe.
But if you want to go a more conventional route and view it in the order that most other people would suggest then it would be as follows:
