Not to be missed, especiallyif you have children. Monkeys - more or less tame - swing down from the trees for food. Bags of nuts are on sale, so you can feed them. It is quitean extensive monkey park so you can easily spend an hour or so without getting bored

It takes about an hour to walk round, you are given a very small amount of popcorn to feed the monkeys with, who are all sitting on the guard rails looking fairly bored and they will take the popcorn very gently from your hand. Ok for children as they will enjoy seeing so many monkeys up close, but nothing else... More

It is amazing to see all the monkeys and their offspring in this lovely location. They give you a handful of popcorn, on entering and explain how to feed the monkeys. There are employees constantly walking around and checking on the welfare of the animals and people visiting the park. While an amazing adventure, the monkeys seemed bored and not... More

Have kids, a big kid at heart or just a monkey enthusiast??? Then this hidden gem is the place for you. It is tucked away in a beautiful part of Alsace / Vosage part of Northeast France. If history and wine aren't enough to bring you to the region then a half day to La Montagene Des Singes (Monkey Mountain)... More

I liked the place a lot. For me, it was the first time coming so close to "free" monkeys, so it was something special. We had luck with the weather and the place wasn't too crowded thanks to the off-season visit. You get a hand-full of popcorn at the entrance, as well as a lecture how you should behave. The... More

This is a great place to spend half a day. The macaques are completely accustomed to the presence of humans and will happily pick up popcorn (provided at the entrance) from your hand or ignore you completely. Younger macaques play as if no one else was around. It was much nice than I had hoped and lots of fun four... More

Exciting for kids. Monkeys feed right from your hands. Situated in a lovely park-like forest. Nice playground area for the kids afterward.

The park itself is not big and the main attraction is feeding the free monkeys (Barbary macaque) that stroll all around the park. on the entrance you are getting a small amount of popcorn to be used for the feeding. the monkeys are friendly and my kids were exited. There is also a short show presented in french, quite boring... More
