Billa Praterstern Vienna Reviews
Billa Praterstern - Groceries on Sunday? Mar 02, 2008
The Billa at Praterstern (06:00 - 21:00) is one of four supermarkets which are allowed to open everyday in Vienna. The second one is at Franz Josephs-Bahnhof. The third one is located inside the AKH (Viennas main hospital). From fresh meat to fresh baked bred you will find everything you need there. The forth one (SPAR) is located at the Vienna airport, but the one at Praterstern (U1 – Praterstern) the best one to reach.
Billa is the second biggest chain in Austria, where the market sized difference to Spar (the biggest) is less than a percentage. The east part of Austria is dominated by Billa, where the western part is dominated by Spar.
Please note, these opening times are only for the branch at Praterstern station (S-Bahn and Subway U1), the other Billa branches won't have the same opening times:
Monday - Sunday: 06:00 - 21:00 (365days a year)
Keep in mind Austria has shorter opening hours than most other countries; on Sundays nearly all shops are closed.
And if you haven't seen the Wiener Riesenrad (ferries wheel) its only a short walk from that Billa/Praterstern to it. Or go up to the train platform you have a nice view from there as well.
