  • It's a very nice place for a day trip! The monkeys are very sweet, they have lots of space and the employees really seem to care. We had an amazing talk with Moritz who was really well informed and could answer questions about the forest and the behavior without any trouble. We did not like the behavior of parents and kids that did not care about the rules. We also would really love to see this place being phone-free, we don't think the monkeys enjoy a phone in their face from anybody walking by.
  • Real nice place with good nature. When you go to see the monkeys you get a handful of popcorn, you can give to the monkeys. Children liked it.
