Would you like to buy fresh food on Sunday? No problem – in Vienna everything is possible. Even on a Sunday, you are guaranteed to be able to buy fresh produce. After you have done your shopping, you can then cook something delicious in one of our CheckVIENNA apartments, which are equipped with a modern kitchen.

First of all, we would like to mention the supermarkets, which are located at the larger train stations as it is easy and fast to travel to them by public transport. At Praterstern, there are two supermarkets from larger chains (Billa and Railshop) while at the main train station (Hauptbahnhof), you will discover, in addition to various other shops, an Interspar supermarket. At Westbahnhof, you can shop in a Billa Plus mini market.

Our Tip: On Sundays, the queues can be long in these shops and we recommend that you simply take a longer waiting time into account or simply get up a little earlier to avoid the rush.

Billa, Opening times: daily 6am – 10pm
Railshop, Opening times:
Monday – Friday: 1pm – midnight
Saturday: 24 hours
Sunday: 8am – midnight

Bakeries open on Sunday

The best way to start a perfect day in Vienna is with fresh and sometimes even warm rolls and cakes. Many bakeries in Vienna are also open on a Sunday, giving you the chance to buy various treats, from rolls and buns to delicious cakes as well as things which you may need on a daily basis, such as milk or butter. You will find everything you need to prepare a wonderful and relaxed breakfast in your CheckVIENNA apartment.

But a trip to a bakery on a Sunday is also an excellent idea for those who want to take advantage of the various low-priced breakfasts on offer. In particular, we can recommend Felzl and Gül, as well as the Vienna Backshop, Ströck Feierabend and the truly trendy branches of Joseph Brot.
