Apenheul is a great park with a lot kindes of monkeys. The best thing that I liked were shoes of a lot of monkeys like gorilas. I didn't like that they didn't released some of the monkeys. I brought to apenheul a camera, walking shoes and a lot of water. This is an all day event.

We had a really good day at the park. Both of the kids (4yr & 10 months) had fun. There are plenty of different monkeys/apes to see and they all seem to have interesting enclosures. Was a bit scary when 3 monkeys ambushed our buggy on first entering the park but after they had hoovered up all the crumbs they... More

It is a very clean and well maintained monkey zoo. They have a great variety of monkeys from all over the world. For our daughter of 20 months, it was very exciting because some monkeys visited her in her stroller. We had a great day at a great park.

The Apenheul is a wonderful zoo focused on primates. The park is beautiful and clean and a lot of fun for all age groups. The initial exhibit as you enter has small monkeys running around among the visitors and many will climb on you. They readily search your pockets and bags for food and are quite friendly and gentle. The... More

Some mnkeys will come and sit on your arm.Therre are several demonstrations with monkey feeding and many informatioen about the various species. Enough possibilities to... More

A group of us with a 3 year old child went to the primate zoo on a Thursday in May. Even though the place was packed with people, we had a great time especially the little one who really love the spider monkeys. Easy to get there and easy to move around enjoying the monkeys, gorillas and apes.

We came on a Sunday afternoon. It was nice and sunny day. And we enjoyed our walk through the forest. It was great fun to see all the wild monkeys so close up. Every day there are activities like Gorilla-feeding,... I have several restaurants throughout the park for you're tired feet or empty stomach. As it's all outdoor I suggest... More

it is very pretty and huge zoo, even thought it is just for monkeys. The monkeys will come to you. and it offers lots of activities for children.But it is too expensive i think.
