Traditional houses have disappeared – a lot of problems: what is the cause of the death of inns


The traditional inn “Zum Nepomuk” in Favoriten is closed, the ever-popular Heurige “Wambacher” in Hietzing is bankrupt. The catering industry is in crisis. The “Krone” spoke to an experienced restaurateur about the problems and the necessary reconsideration.

Simon Masek took over the Heurigen restaurant “Wambacher” in the 13th district in November 2020. That’s why he fell over the Corona financing. But high inflation has hit the company even more than Corona. This meant that the tenant had to file for bankruptcy after more than three years.

It’s not just him: as of December 31, 2023, according to surveys by the Vienna Chamber of Commerce, there were 374 inns in the federal capital. Last year there were 394.
