Vienna Schanigärten – Review of the impact of the new directive on new licences for Schanigärten in Vienna

On 31 December 2021, around 500 permanent permits for the installation of Schanigärten on public property in Vienna expire. The entrepreneurs concerned must therefore submit new applications for the 2022 season. The current (stricter) guidelines will be applied. For some entrepreneurs, this means that their new outdoor cafés will be significantly smaller or that they will no longer be allowed to set up outdoor cafés from 2022 onwards. These businesses should be informed by the Chamber of Commerce in a timely manner so that they can react to the changed situation in good time.
