Spent a lovely afternoon walking around the monkey park, we were there for about 4 hours. Remember to use a 'monkey proof' bag for your belongings, provided free of charge. The presentations were only in Dutch so we can not comment on those, but there were plenty of people listening and they also attract the monkeys so are worth stopping... More

The Apenheul is the monkey Zoo of Holland. They only have monkey's in this zoo. You would think that, that would be boring but that's so not true! We enjoyed every seccond and stayed till the parc closed! Before you step in to the parc you get a bag to put in yout bab... The monkey's who are walking around... More

This place is wonderful. For youngsters and olders. You'll have lot of fun and will learn tons of interesting stuff, not to mention - most of the monkeys look adorable. One more thing - small monkeys will walk/run/hide around you, so make sure to protect your backpack - this little crazy but cute creatures know how to get everywhere!

The monkeys are eating from your hands. What can be better then that. Unfortunatly, the presentations are only in Dutch, so English visitors are kept behind.

Apenhaul is home to more than 20 different types of monkeys and apes. The monkeys are free to walk around on the trees (the small ones even come to say hi..) and it is a greart experience to see families of urang utangs or gorillas jumping from one tree to another or taking shelter from the rain :) the park...

We went there in the holidays in the Netherlands, but nonetheless, it was not that full. I love that the animals were running around in an almost natural surroundings. I really like the fact that Apenheul is trying to breed monkeys because there are some races which are reduced to just a few hundred monkeys. What I really did not... More

Our third time here and as always it has been a pleasure . the kids a facinated by the free small monkeys and three hours have passed so quickly... there have been many people around but as it is an open place it did not bother anybody. Only bad point- the bathrooms were not alwyas clean and tidy

You need a good day here. All the animals seem happy here. There's some random animals walking the surroundings so make sure you have a bag that you can shut to protect your personal belongings. If you've finished at the Apenheul you can go wandering through the Bergen Bos. There's so much to do here. There's the klimbos, kid's playground... More

The Apenheul Primate Park is a fabulous exhibit of primates in beautiful, lush surroundings. Many monkeys are free to run about amongst the visitors, whilst others are in jungle and bush with 'invisible' barriers. The Gorillas are actually on an island, separated by a clear stream. Avoid the school holiday period if possible (it is very crowded) but even with... More

Although mostly patronized by families with young children my wife and I visited this wonderfully lay out park and we truly enjoyed this. Some areas have the (little) monkeys run around free among the people which is great fun. The park is well organized, clean, beautifully landscaped. Entrance, food and parking is reasonably priced. Toilet are plenty are for free.... More
