I was surprised how fun my trip to Monkey Hill was. The grounds are large and tranquil. There is a large enclosure you walk through with deer. Also watching the monkeys playing and feeding them popcorn was great. Staff are throughout the park to answer questions. Fun for kids and adults.

My 4 year old wasn't sure what to expect when I told him we were going but he had a great time when we got there. He loved being close to the monkeys and really liked that the monkeys ate out of his hand. Probably spent about 3 hours in total at the whole place (including eating)

Excellent experience for kids and not only. This is the place where you can feed monkeys directly from your hand and learn a bunch about them.

The Affenberg is a nice place to go if you have children. The monkeys behave nicely and you can get really close.

It is a very fun experience there. Visiting the Park was total Fun. I was given food for the monkey before we entered the park. I would say this is the best place for Family to have fun.

Really nice made - lot to see, lot do learn. We had fun (even if it was raining). You get free popcorn to feed the monkeys! It´s not big and in the morning also not crowded. We were there about 10AM and it was still fine.

As you approach the park you'll see the storks sitting on the barn roofs and nearby trees. It's an exhilarating sight to see. To be in such a natural environment where storks are free and safe. Upon entering the park, there are fish, ducks and best of all monkeys. They're free but within a gated area. At the entrance, guides... More

I have taken my boys here multiple times and every time has been a treat. In the rain or on a nice sunny day, didn't matter. The monkeys come out of the woods for popcorn (provided free of charge) and hang around for the feeding. Highly recommend go near a feeding/show time. If not then it is just the monkeys... More
