Fun for kids

Cool experience having monkeys take popcorn from your hand. They're pretty strict about rules so don't do anything to threaten the creatures.

This is a fun activity for kids and adults alike. This attraction can be done in conjunction with the Volerie des Aigles which is only a 5-10 minute drive away. Children really love this place as they can feed the monkeys, they are not in cages. At the start, you are given a handful of popcorn which you can feed... More

I had a wonderful time here. Being surrounded by all the monkeys honestly made me so happy, which proves that la Montagne des Singes is just as good for adults as it is for children!. As an animal lover, I loved being so close to the monkeys and having the opportunity to feed them. I in general avoid attractions involving... More

Feed wild monkeys without cages, some right characters here, feed the monkeys with popcorn, included in entrance price, and watch them in their natural habitat, a real fun day out for all

This attraction can be done in conjunction with the Volerie des Aigles as they are within a 5-10 minute drive from each other. It is a very good activity for children since they can get in contact with the monkeys living in this park. At the entrance you are given a handful of popcorn which you can feed to the... More

You spend time in the natural habitat of the monkeys and you have a chance to feed them. It worths the time on the road. The activity is not only good for children but also for adults. Just make sure to wear comfortable shoes and clothes because you walk in the forest.

I am not sure that this park is the sort of place I would recommend; its great for the kids to be able to get up and close with the monkeys but I thought that feeding monkeys popcorn in an enclosure was more aimed at the tourists rather than the well being of the monkeys. I much prefer larger parks... More

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
