Apenheul: a forest full of free-roaming monkeys. Our beautiful, green zoo is home to around 300 monkeys of 35 different species. Half of those are free to roam among the visitors, which makes Apenheul unique in the world. Apenheul is in Apeldoorn, surrounded by nature in the Veluwe. Enjoy refreshments on our terraces or monkey around in one of the many playgrounds. Our zoo also offers plentiful opportunities for beautiful animal photos! Plan a visit and discover Apenheul for yourself.

Recognise yourself

At Apenheul we’re sure of it: watching primates is the best thing there is. It’s funny, educational and relatable. Because out of all animals, primates are most like humans. There’s a big chance that you recognise yourself in one of the primates at our park.

Primate Conservation Trust

At Apenheul, you get to meet many different species of primate. Unfortunately, many of their counterparts in the wild are not doing so well. Their habitat is disappearing and they are being hunted. In 1994, we established the Apenheul Primate Conservation Trust (APCT). With this fund, we support nature conservation projects to protect primates and their habitats in the wild.
