Had an amazing time at 'la montagne des singes', were there for about an hour. But I was so surprised by how many monkeys there were and just how tame they were. I was expecting to have to look around and see one every so often, and when walking in it seemed it would be this way, as most stay... More

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
