The village is located just across from the popular Hunderwasserhaus in Central Vienna. Hundertwasser Village was formerly a tire shop, and then it was converted into the Village.

Naschmarkt is a Vienna market that dates from as far back as 1780. In 1780, the market was on the right bank of the river Wien – just outside the city walls. In 1793 it was ordered that all fruit and vegetables that were coming in from outside of the city must go to the Naschmarkt. In 1910, more than 120 market stalls were built, and it became a wholesale market that sold just about anything. In 1972, it moved to its current location on the outskirts of Vienna and was modernized to its current form. There are all sorts of international stalls and restaurants.
