Gasthaus zum Schiffmeister - Owner Hermann Viehböck
According to land registry records, the origins of this traditional inn date back to the 17th century, although the name of the innkeeper Adolf Königseder does not appear in the job titles until 1929. Anyone who has known the old Königseder inn will hardly doubt that it has always been an inn. The first mention dates back to 1621 and the name Königseder, which is closely associated with the house, first appears in 1785. After the house subsequently had various owners, it came into the possession of a Königseder again in 1891 through an exchange. Anton Königseder swapped the brewery for the inn with Alois Rosenstingl. From then until 1998 it was always owned by the Königseder family. Due to the construction of the Aschach power station - completed in 1964 - whose reservoir reaches as far as the Jochenstein power station, it was also necessary to land in the area of the market town of Wesenufer. The Königseder inn was one of the buildings that fell victim to this construction measure. Only the large chestnut tree in today's garden of the newly built inn has survived. During this long period, the inn has always been a popular meeting place for the citizens of Wesenufer and has been the favourite venue for the Union Wesenufer since the club was founded, hosting many unforgettable events such as Krampuskränzchen, outdoor summer night parties, sports balls, etc. When Wolfgang Königseder took over the pub from his parents Adolf and Emma Königseder, who had run it since 1929, in 1978, it experienced a new upswing. A newly built hall with a capacity of around 200 people, the youthful vigour of the innkeepers Gusti and Wolfgang and, last but not least, the excellent cooking skills of the former ship's cook made the restaurant famous far beyond the boundaries of the municipality. In 1998, the inn was sold to Hermann Viehböck from Hinzenbach. Together with his partner Gitti, the new landlord, who has been chairman of the local tourism association since 2005, runs his restaurant with great dedication, which he has equipped with four comfortable rooms and ten beds in the two-year period. The well-kept establishment serves quality Austrian wine and specialities from the Sauwald region all year round. A particular attraction in summer is the beautiful guest garden, where you can relax and unwind in the shade of the old chestnut tree with a view of the Danube. Viehböck made a good move by renting the former agency building from the municipality in 2002, which he converted into the Neptun pub and which has been very popular with local revellers ever since.
Unfortunately, the pub was also affected by the floods in 2002 and 2013 and was repeatedly renovated and repaired by Hermann Viehböck.
