The master thesis evaluates the built environment, open spaces and pedestrian route network in the cadastral municipality of Zistersdorf from a landscape planning perspective. The built environment and the open spaces were mapped and evaluated regarding the everyday usability for pedestrians. In order to understand the genesis of the town and its street network, a comparison of the actual land use map with the first comprehensive Austrian field book of the 19th century (the so-called „Franziszeische Kataster“) and the current land use plan of Zistersdorf was undertaken. Furthermore, an evaluation of the local development concept based on the legislative framework of Lower Austria was conducted. The current land use plan (Flächenwidmungsplan) and zoning plan (Bebauungsplan) have been assessed and amended in order to improve the quality for the pedestrian route network. The thesis concludes with a list of measures and proposals for the local planning instruments (local development concept, land use plan, zoning plan).
