Large grocery store open on Sun Dec 22nd near Turmburggasse?

Hello,

could you recommend a good grocery store near Turmburggasse which is open tomorrow, Dec. 22nd (if any)? We will arrive to Vienna Sunday morning and stay in a private property on that street. We have a rental car so it doesn't need to be very close by. We would like to buy for example good fish and/or meat for Christmas meals and look for a good selection.

Thank you for your advice and Merry Christmas!

Shops are basically closed on Sundays with the exception of a very very few markets located at train stations. If you arrive by plane, then use the BILLA supermarket at the airport! Alternatively, you can go to the MERKUR mini store at West Station (Westbahnhof).

Thank you for this information. Can you advice on a good large store that is open on Monday, 23rd, where we could get our Xmas food (fresh herbs, good meat, cheese...)?

I would go to the next Merkur Market ... https://www.google.at/maps/preview#!data=!4m23!3m17!1m1!1sMerkur+Markt%2C+Mariahilfer+Stra%C3%9Fe+42-48%2C+1070+Wien!1m5!1sTurmburggasse%2C+1060+Wien!2s0x476da8278be2f68d%3A0x21920cbe3481fe08!3m2!3d48.1924441!4d16.3524072!3m8!1m3!1d20221!2d16.3469765!3d48.203367!3m2!1i1440!2i730!4f13.1!7m4!11m3!1m1!1e1!2b1&fid=0

Monday, the 23rd December, is a regular working day why all shops are opened as usual. Some even to 20:00 hours. Vienna basically has many supermarkets, you won't need to go far to reach one. At most markets meat is already packed, real butcher service (meat) can only be found at less locations. But there are also butcher stores which are specialised on meat.

Markets of BILLA, SPAR, MERKUR feature a coldmeat/cheese/bakery bar ("Feinkost") where coldmeat and cheese are freshly sliced. Not far from your address there is a SPAR GOURMET supermarkt (Neubaugasse - No.25) where you (should) also encounter a butcher service. SPAR Gourmet basically offers higher quality especially in regard to products where freshness is important (like the ones mentioned above).

If you have time and fancy to see a luxury supermarket, then visit JULIUS MEINL at Kohlmarkt/Graben (=1st district/city center), a great place which also features a great wine selection as well as fish/seafood.
