In this contribution we investigate the connection between clusters of galaxies and their large-scale environment, with an emphasis on clusters which are well characterized by their X-ray emission. We show that this connection is so tight that clusters can be used as perfect tracers of the large-scale matter distribution and thus for cosmological tests. The correlation of the X-ray traced cluster mass and the optical luminosity of the galaxy content of clusters shows that the dark matter and galaxy distribution are tightly connected, but we also observe a scatter which is so far not well understood. We further explore the correlation of the galaxy population mix with the geometry of the large-scale structure features. On larger scales we also find correlations of the properties of galaxy clusters with the density of their large-scale structure environment.
