On the river side, the Weißgerberlände is accompanied by the Friedensreich Hundertwasser Promenade, named in 2002. Around 1830 the name Armen Sünder Gasse was used for the unpaved road on the bank, which once led to the place of execution, and the name An der Gänseweide was used for the piece from today's Kegelgasse to the then Sophienbrücke; the goose pasture was the place of execution from the 14th to the 18th century. The bank of the Danube Canal was unobstructed at the time and delimited the back of the gardens of the houses on Untere Gärtnergasse, today's Untere Weißgerberstraße.
