This diploma thesis deals primarily with the recultivation of post-mining regions, therefore, a close look is taken at the good practice example of the "Eden Project" in Cornwall, UK; it represents a perfect role model. The overall aim of this thesis is to find a way to implement a project similar to an international role model project in Austria, taking into account the basic regional conditions. Consequently, new perspectives are highlighted, which can be seen as an innovative approach in regional development.Additional to a short definition of mining and reclamation, exemplary solutions in European post-mining areas are pointed out. Subsequently, the good practice example Eden Project is described and analysed in order to show its success and to indicate how a post-mining region can be enriched by a single project. Furthermore, the work focuses on the systemic approach of the investigation object, which is carried out by the application of an impact analysis. Consequently, the guidelines for a successful project implementation, which are applicable worldwide, were identified and defined.Afterwards, the emphasis lies on the possible implementation of a project similar to the Eden Project in the region Eisenerz. The initial situation of the region is described and then compared with the characteristics of the region Cornwall and the Eden Project. The region Eisenerz is analysed through an application of a systemic approach; a new "bridge model" was developed in order to display the relevance of previously defined factors for a project implementation in a post-mining area, in particular in the region Eisenerz. Based on the findings in this work, the research on post-mining regeneration and the role model Eden Project will continue to make the practical implementation of a project in the region Eisenerz possible.
