Monkey land

Appenheul is a nice monkey resort near Arnhem. You can see 35 different species of monkeys. It is a very nice trip also for families. Because of corona you can not touch monkeys.

A fun day out
Aug 2021
This is very nice park which showcases over 30 different apes. The park is well set-up, with good visibility of the monkey's and in some places even the ability to walk among the apes.

No covid care, crowded, poor staff and family care
Aug 2021 • Family
The care for the animals is the best you will ever see in a zoo, but due to the situation the care for people, lack of info and lack of attention to rules is shocking.

The place is actually a nice 20 minutes from the parking, but ok,it say something similar on the website.

Respect for distancing, covid prevention,family and kids care is totaly absent. Matter of fact people are massed up together and staff isn't caring a bit about it, if you want to be smart and careful forget it.

Park was absolutely too full for covid emergency and the info on the website ( quiet day and not too full) it's a lie, the place was absolutely over its limit.

Had a wonderful walk, socialized with monkeys, looked at apes
Oct 2019
Relatively big zoo (~2 hours just to walk around it without hurry), a lot of monkeys and apes.

Monkeys are mostly walking freely. Some prefer to rest on trees, some really likes to meet visitors. One lemur had some fun jumping over me, just when I tried to photo it.

Apes are mostly separated from visitors by rivers. So called 'apes island' system — really smart idea. Zoo at Prague has the same. It's a pity, that it was raining during my visit: most apes were hiding in the buildings. Of course, there are windows, but still — not the same.

Planning is reasonable: there is enough points of rest, areas for dinner, coffee points. A lot of children-oriented thingies. (I had not pay enough attention and on my way back went through the kids obstacle course by the accident. I'm sized as 3 of your average kids, so it was a memorable experience).

Must do. Full day.
Oct 2019 • Family
Amazing experience. Such a happy place filled with free roaming monkeys from all over the world. I would avoid public holidays as it is extremely crowded. Plan to spend the whole day there we spend 6.5 hours (its open for 7) and barely saw everything

Very informative and educational. Great for all ages. Our five year old loved it.

The gorilla feeding show is a must.

If I would improve anything for non Dutch visitors it would be that the shows have English subtitles along with the German on the screen.

Fabulous
Oct 2019
First rate animal experience! Loved having the little guys hopping about at our feet and running across our path! All the animals looked happy and well cared for! The biggest surprise was all the birds, sturgeon and sloth! Be sure to follow the map so you don’t miss the nocturnal animals exhibit. Great place to spend the day!

Amazing park
Nov 2018
Amazing park! Some of the animals are free( when you come with a buggy some of the monkeys will jump inside, so keep that in mind). The park is not that big, but good to spend a day. There is also a big park around. Best thing to do is go on a weekday or very early because during weekend it's quite busy!

Monkey business in a beautiful park
Aug 2019
I have always loved Apenheul. As a child, it was my favorite place to go. Especially because monkeys were my favorite animals.
It has changed over the years, staying in tune with the demands of current times. It's a great place to watch and learn about monkeys. Some are so close, they might steal your stuff if you don't have a bag that is monkey-proof, others are safely in their own areas. There are also many places to play and learn about monkeys and apes. Our kids loved it, and so did I.
