Enjoyed our trip to La Montagne des Singes, the monkeys knew how to grab the food even from young children's hands. Make sure to stay close to your little ones to avoid any scratching. We enjoyed our visit greatly.

We visited La Montagne des Singes as a day trip from Strasbourg. To be honest, I had my doubts about it, but I was pleasantly surprised and really enjoyed the visit. The park enclosure is a nice walking loop where monkeys can roam around freely. Visitors are allowed to feed them some popcorn provided by the staff. The information provided... More

We went with our kids (3 and 9) after visiting the nearby Chateau du Haut-Koeningsbourg. It was great fun to see monkeys so close by for both the children as for us. There were a lot of people, but it never felt crowded. Not even on the terras afterwards where we had ice-cream at a very good price. I do... More

This was not on our itinerary but we decided to give it a go and didn’t regret it. The 200+ monkeys are in a lovely shaded park area where you stroll through, following a path. As you walk through, several monkeys 'wait' for some pop corn which is handed out free on arrival, to all visitors. Best time to visit... More

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
