In 2002 we went further north to Hansa Rostock . After two years in the far north of Germany, Wimmer moved to Rot-Weiß Oberhausen in January 2004 . In the 2005/2006 season he played again for VfB Admira Wacker Mödling. After only one year with Admira, Wimmer signed an extremely performance-related one-year contract with FK Austria Wien . But since he could not prevail in the first team of Austria, he played with the amateurs until his retirement in 2008.

Wimmer played five times for the Austrian national team. He made his debut on August 18, 1999 in a 0-0 draw against Sweden in Malmö . On April 18, 2006, the 29-year-old hot spur was sentenced to a record twelve-game ban after attacking Wacker Tirol's assistant coach Klaus Vogler after the game.
