From the gardens on the walk in it was a very enjoyable and relaxing place. Note - adult tickets were EURO 22.50. Personally I did not enjoy the Gorilla and Orangutan areas where the animals looked bored and more than a little sad. The remainder...More

Fun park to stroll through with the family, and literally monkey see, monkey do. Attend the feeding times, such a delight to see!

Visiting Apenheul on a hot day is a challenge, mostly because of the visitor numbers and the primates hiding from the blistering sun. But..it is so much fun and rewarding. Unluckily there are so many stupid people around who make you want to become a...More

From the design and landscaping to the walking route to information and play areas, this park is well thought through and a pleasant surprise. It is a monkey-only zoo, with a big variety of species. The animals have a lot of space and quite a...More

Been here many times now over many years. They constantly update and renew, impressive. There is lots of teaching about different species. Animals appear to have a large amount of space compared to many zoos I have seen.

Located in the most unlikely of places, smack right in the heart of the Netherlands, deep in the forests of the Hoge Veluwe you find this magical place full of monkeys and apes. Be at awe watching the mighty silverback gorilla's drum their chests, watch...More

The Apenheul is basically a zoo with only monkeys. It is a nice zoo to spend a couple of hours. Especially without children you won't be spending the whole day. I would have preferred some more information on the species and the individual monkeys. Also...More

You can easily spend a good 4 to 5 hours there if you take your time and spend some more time at the area where the monkeys walk around freely and see the shows. Enjoy your stay!
