Home favourite Victor Dubuisson, who began the day four shots off the lead in fourth, had a disappointing final round, dropping four shots, including a double bogey on the 18th and a triple bogey on the seventh to finish two under.
Sunday was all about Wiesberger, who began with three pars before the threat of lightning forced a delay of an hour.
The two-time European Tour winner birdied five of the next six holes to reach the turn in 31 and move into a four-shot lead.
Three birdies on the back nine kept Morrison in contention, but world number 39 Wiesberger was able to retain his advantage with a run of pars and a final birdie on the last.
