As regular visitors and almost neighbors of Apenheul we like to go there with our grandchildren. Again and again the children follow the explorer's track to spot the different monkeys. The track is diversified and the free monkeys between the public, or sometimes separated deliver...More

Nice looking park with very curious monkeys that may pay your bag a visit to see if you have food. Enough to see and lot of information. Kids can do some interactive games to learn 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!
