"Next stop: Attnang-Puchheim" booms from the loudspeakers in the train compartment. Although many people have never seen the town before, Attnang-Puchheim is a familiar term for every train passenger. It is an important rail hub where the Westbahn crosses the Salzkammergutbahn. Throughout history, Attnang-Puchheim has become a synonym for a transitory place, where, apart from the railway station, nothing is worth to be seen. For a long time, this railway station was at the top of the list of "the most ugliest railway stations in Austria", until the new railway station was inally opened in 2014. However, the negative image of the unsightly railway settlement has remained. Although a new city center near the train station was built during reconstruction after WWII, Attnang-Puchheim still has dificulties with its image and identity because the Rathausplatz, which was built in the 1950s", does not operate effectively as a city center. Albeit opening a Billa store averted the total extinction of the square, vacant groundloor premises and facades that are in need of renovation still dominate the cityscape. Not only the bad reputation tampers Attnang-Puchheim, but also the current tensed parking situation. Although Attnang-Puchheim, as an important trafic hub, has the largest park-and-ride facility in Upper Austria, the capacity is not suficient during rush hour and as a result, the Rathausplatz and the surrounding streets are quickly illed with parking cars. Restructuring the center, as well as considering the future urban development of Attnang-Puchheim, are deinitely important to be relected on. This thesis deals with the current situation of Attnang-Puchheim. The historical and present situation, as well as strengths and weaknesses of the town will be explained by a detailed analysis. Based on this analysis, an urban concept that shows location-speciic solutions has been developed. The aim is to enhance the quality of the city center of Attnang-Puchheim by means of mixing working, housing, recreation, leisure and culture. Additionally, the problem of the current parking situation is picked out as a central theme, as it is essential for the survival of the city center at the moment, and therefore, is part of the concept. A typology that defuses the current parking situation and reacts to future developments should be designed.
