There are different types of 'monkeys' here that should be in warmer countries. It is what it is. My daughter liked it, so that's something. I know that visitors to another country should learn some basics of the language of that country, but this is a tourist attraction and more effort should be made to cater for non-Dutch speaking visitors....

Astonishing monkeys zoo! My kids really enjoyed the visit, they could see different kind of apes and very close. It's like a monkeys safari. We took a ticket after 14:30 and we paid 17,50€ adults and 10€ children.

In some parts the monkeys walk free. Be sure to have your items in the special (free) bag that is offered to you. Very large park in the forrest of the Veluwe. A lot of information about the many monkeys who live here. You can easily spend more than 4 hours here. Also a nice spot where children can play.... More

First time that i see monkeys live in their own envoirment without any cages. The site is big and amazing, there are a lot kinds of monkeys and it is beautiful! There are two roads that close half a hour before the site is close so don't be late.

Walk amongst monkeys! Such a cool experience to have the tiny adorable monkeys come right up to you! I recommend this if you haven't done something like it. We don't have children but it is definitely somewhere kids would love too

On my last trip to Amsterdam a taxi driver recommended Apenheul when I told him I was coming back in a few short weeks with my family and wanted to get outside the city. Apenheul did not disappoint! It was a little more difficult than I expected to get to from Amsterdam. We took a train from Amsterdam Central Station... More

A great place on a sunny day! While the admission was in our opinion a bit high, the park is extensive with loads of monkeys, apes and orangutans. Several cafes/snack bars,and places to sit and take a break. In general a good place for all age groups.

This place is just wonderful. So well laid out and interactive- you really do get up close with the animals - with money safe bags available to borrow during your visit. Bonobos and orang-utans are amazing and could watch them forever and gorilla island is huge! Kids loved the playgrounds along the way which were positioned right next to the... More

A zoo where the animals rule - that’s the general feel of Apenheul. The apes and monkeys of this zoo are free to roam where they please, allowing you to interact with them in a unique way. A very special experience. Take your time to enjoy the park and allow for at least 2-3 hours. One moment the monkeys are... More
