Project summary

Edit project overview to modify the project summary.


In the city of Leoben the river Mur, with its overgrown banks and embankments, forms the central green structure of the city. The strongly meandering watercourse divides the city into different areas and neighborhoods. The enormous leisure and recovery potential along the Mur is currently used only insufficiently and in certain areas. Based on a strengths-weaknesses analysis the objectives and measures have been formulated in the master plan, which indicates an enhanced landscape-architectural approach to the Mur.

The aim was to present and bring to life the Mur as a watercourse within the cityscape. The Mur is part of the city architecture (bridges, walls, stairs), connects (green belt and network, leisure axis), interrupts and opens (sights and views). The Mur with its bank- and river structures shall serve as a meeting place, recreation area and safe playground. Safe and contiguous walk and bike trails shall be established along the Mur. They shall interlink the urban neighborhoods and landscapes and lead on to the regional bike and walking network. Design priorities, presented in different variants, point to ways in which the opportunities and attractiveness for recreation and leisure use can be increased.
