The Almenland is located in the northwestern part of the "Grazer Bergland" around the Teichalm and Sommeralm. The region is located at an altitude of 464-1720 meter and is characterized by the extensive subalpine alpine pastures, grassland-dominated cultural landscape with rock faces and gorges, as well as extensive forest landscapes.
The nature park Almenland stretches from the "Bärenschützklamm" in the Murtal to the "Freistritzklamm" between Birkfeld and Weiz and from the "Rennfeld" in the north to the "Schöckl" in the south. It has an area of about 442 km² and about 13.870 inhabitants.

There are six twonships at Almenland:
