Wieninger was a city councilor in Munich from 1946 to 1952. He was a member of the German Bundestag from 1953 to 1965. From 1957 to 1965 he was chairman of the Bundestag committee for SME issues. For many years he campaigned for a ban on business and staff trade , as this endangered the existence of the retail trade. A corresponding draft law introduced on his initiative by the parliamentary groups of the CDU / CSU and the DP in 1958 was passed by the Bundestag and Bundesrat at the end of 1960. However, Federal President Heinrich Lübke refused to sign the law because it violated the freedom of career choice guaranteed in the Basic Law.
