Old buildings, whose names can be derived from “Schiffmeister”, are very common at the Danube. They origin in the historic name for the “Nauführer”, today known as captains, of the ships on the Danube. In times where the traffic on the river was dominated by large rafts, “Schiffmeister” houses were inns with additional agriculture. This is also the case for the inn “Zum Schiffmeister”, which was in times of the old Danube shipping a loading station. Today, the family Viehböck continues the hospitality tradition of this place – an attached wine house “Vinothek” and “Mostothek” included!
