You will have a lot of fun cruising around all these monkeys... and the children will love it, but be careful these animals are not pets and like to steel anything they can find in your bags, on your head! Have Fun !!!

These monkeys will approach you because they wait for you to feed them popcorn. Although unsalted, I'm not sure how healthy it is for monkeys? They said it's a treat for them and their diet is based on actual food, the monkeys did look well just really used to people being all around. All in all it was fun

This monkey mountain is definitely worth a visit. They help the species of Barbary Apes to survive in Europe and offer a nice, very "close to the animals" visit in a forest. The apes run around freely and can be fed with popcorn, that you are given a handful when entering the parc. At the entry you get security advices,... More

A great couple of hours wandering around a forest getting very close the wildlife. The macaques roam freely. Sitting by the side of the pathways. Sitting on benches. Waiting for passers-by to supply the popcorn to munch. A pleasant way to while away a couple of hours. Put together with La Volerie des aigles for a full morning or afternoon.

This is a great afternoon of fun. The monkies are wandering around and available to feed. However you ONLY feed them park provided popcorn. The monkies are not aggressive like the are at Gibraltar. They've been taught to stay off the path & for the most part they do. They are gentle reaching for the popcorn. Most people only spend... More

Traveling with two small kids, we stopped here after sightseeing at Haut-Koenigsbourg. For the kids (5 & 10) this was SO much more exciting and memorable! They got to feed the monkeys by hand and still talk about what that felt like. We learned how these monkeys got saved from extinction and that the reserve helps repopulate them in their... More

This attraction was excellent. The monkey park was fantastic, the monkeys would approach you and eat out of your hand at ease. If you be there at feeding time there is a handler that talks about the monkeys. My kids loved this place, i loved this place it is well worth the drive. food and drinks available onsite and a...

We took an afternoon to visit this wonderful place and I'm glad we did. The scenery was beautiful, and we were able to walk with the monkeys totally unrestricted. The monkeys approach you with little or no hesitation and you actually get to feed them from your hand. I'm so glad to have had this experience and would have only... More

What an interesting place to see, it's not what I expected. Being able to hand feed monkeys and having them literally cross your path as you walk through. My kids loved it, I think they thought it was a bit surreal. The staff were extremely knowledgable and I liked that they approached you to give to interesting info and facts... More
