Visited another monkey park before in a different part of France and thoroughly enjoyed it so decided to visit enroute to Colmar. The entrance fee is reasonable €9 per person. Free parking on site too. Clearly signposted to the mountain too. We went early as soon as they first opened. There were only a few monkeys interested in eating the... More

Visit their web page, is a perfect description of what you would see and get, went with my 3 year old, he loved it... Was happy feeding the "Macacos" with popcorns, those little monkeys are very social, calm and friendly. Definitely recommendable for a good afternoon.

The place looked a little spooky and the monkeys were not all so happy to have to interact with all of us visitors. The trees were all sort of bare except for some green way on the top. You are given a hand full of popcorn when you go in and that is all that you are allowed to feed... More

This was a really fun 90 minutes or so. Kids and adults had fun walking around and feeding the monkeys. It was a very clean and well-maintained environment. It was a little pricy as 3 adults and 3 kids cost nearly 50 euro.

So so disappointed, the place is small, expensive and the animals are sick, they look and behave like drugged, I honestly felt sorry for them. When you enter you receive a few popcorn colonels to give to the monkeys and yes, pour souls are comming to take them but they can barely stand, some of them weren't moving at all,... More

We've visited this park a couple of times and always have a nice time! You get a handful of popcorn at gate that you hold close to your chest. When you find a hungry monkey, which isn't hard to do, you place one piece of popcorn in the palm of your hand and hold it out, the monkey gently grabs... More

The drive to get here was awesome. You pass through a quaint little village that is so beautiful. There are playgrounds for the kids to play and a little shop with food. Upon entry you are given a speech about keeping your things to yourself and contained so that the monkeys cannot grab and run with your things. You are... More

This place is very nice, all the little monkeys doing mischiefs. The park workers care a lot about the security of people and the monkeys. Highly recommend

We visited with our kids (6 & 8) who loved feeding the monkeys and seeing the tiny babies play around. The wooded setting is nice and it is refreshing to see the animals in more of an “open” natural setting. Visitors are given a handful of popcorn at the beginning to feed the monkeys and although the kids ran out... More

The walk around the park takes approx. 45 mins at a casual stroll with stops to feed the monkeys. Everything was well run with plenty of information on the monkeys and also the protocol on how to behave around them. We saw only very well behaved monkeys who seem well trained to sit on the rail and wait for you... More
