MAINTAINING NATURAL VARIETY...
The trademark features of the region include lovingly tended meadows along valleys and slopes as well as forested landscapes and imposing rock walls, ravines and canyons. Maintaining this variety, protecting aspects under threat and promoting a careful restoration of that which has been lost, count amongst the goals of the national park.
A MULTI-FACETED HOLIDAY DESTINATION
The Almenland Nature Park has also developed into a leading tourist region, with almost 200,000 overnight stays. In Almenland Nature Park, locals and guests can all enjoy the recreational value as well as the high environmental and lifestyle quality. Today Almenland is a popular destination for young and old, with walking trails, sports facilities and a tremendous range of excursions, like the summer toboggan run in Koglhof, the caves in Arzberg or the many possibilities in nearby Graz.
THE ALMENLAND FARMERS´ SEAL OF QUALITY
Almenland also presents its culinary side in a very tasteful, and tasty, manner. It is one of many aspects of local life in which quality is always the priority.
