Apenheul Primate Park

The Apenheul is a zoo in Apeldoorn with mainly monkeys. The Apenheul is located in a forest and special is that many monkeys could walk around freely between the visitors. The Apenheul opened in 1971.

Apenheul sightseeingMonkeys that walk around freely come in contact with visitors in the Apenheul. This is special, but visitors also need to be careful with their belongings and food. More dangerous monkeys have a place on islands and in sheds and cages. A visit to the Apenheul is educational and a nice day for adults and children.
