Truly my most favourite place in the Netherlands. I come here a few times per year and I just love how the monkeys play with each other and act as if there are no humans around them, while you are walking between those running monkeys. I especially love the orang-utans, they have many different islands where they can climb and... More

Monkeys galore! Well taken care of monkeys. Great family attraction. We had a great time here. You can get among some of the monkeys, so close ups are a must. Do visit!

We have two boys, 12 and 7 years old, they LOVED it. Plenty of places for them to stop and play as we interacted with some very cute cute and curious little monkeys. Be sure to catch the feeding times as well for the bigger guys -- informative and entertaining. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the park outside once... More

A well-planned and organized park, a lot of monkeys of course. Our almost 2yo child liked it (as well as we did), especially the small monkeys that are as curious as the children themselves. At the end of the 'route' our child has seen already enough of monkeys, so he switched into other things, but the planning of the park... More

The Apenheul is located near the National Park Hoge Veluwe in the municipality of Apeldoorn. There is ample of parking space and after a short walk you get to the entrance of the park. Since there areas in which the monkeys are in free range, it is advised to carry your belongings in a special bag which you can borrow.... More

If like me you adore monkeys you will love Apenheul. The monkeys are not all free ranging but many are particularly the smaller ones. If you've enjoyed meeting the odd monkey in Asia this is a real treat because the monkeys are dutch and naturally very chilled. Curious happy but not totally crazy. Notice how un skittish the cats are... More

Nice wildlife park, based on primates, but with other species also. Impresive spread of land, interesting walk, intelligent concept.

Whilst in the area and with some friends kids we popped into Apenheul.. Unfortunately it appeared to be the busiest day ever, which i would advise heavily against ever doing! Wandering in they advise to put away everything you have into bags they provide, and if you want to take photos have your camera out at all times as when... More

I can not say enough great things about this place! I visited here a few years ago and was so impressed with the care of these animals! This is a truly "open - concept" approach! I highly recommend going if you are in driving distance! It is a day you won't forget!
