It consists of the Katastralgemeinden Flattach and Fragrant.
Flattach is located in the valley of the Möll river, a tributary to the Drava, within the Hohe Tauern mountain range of the Central Eastern Alps. A footpath over the Fragranter Tauern mountain pass connected it with Rauris in the Pinzgau region of Salzburg.
The municipality emerged in 1895 from the market town of Obervellach in the east. For centuries it had been a mining area, especially for iron and copper. Today Fragrant is the site of a hydroelectric power station collecting water from several reservoirs in the northern Ankogel mountains.
Flattach mainly depends on tourism offering the Mölltaler Gletscher ski area located on the Wurtenkees glacier and the Raggaschlucht, a narrow gorge within the southern Kreuzeck mountain range with walls up to 200 m (650 ft) high and wooden walkways above the water.
