Affenberg Salem

Salem, Germany

Visiting fallow deer, storks and the monkey gang

For 40 years, Salem on Lake Constance has been home to Germany’s biggest and most attractive open-air monkey enclosure. More than 200 playful Barbary macaques roam free in a 20-hectare Stretch of woodland. The special park concept offers these animals, originally from the mountainous regions in Morocco and Algeria, to enjoy a life in a near-natural environment and, thanks to the very similar climate, the monkeys can stay out all year round.

The Barbary macaques share the idyllic site around the pond, populated by numerous water birds and carp, with an impressive, free-flying nesting colony of white storks and a herd of graceful fallow deer. Instead of numerous different animals in a small space, Affenberg Salem has only a few species which enjoy the best possible living conditions. Visitors can see the animals up close without being separated by fences or ditches.

Extensive information is provided on numerous display boards, in the interactive monkey review, during supervised feeding (see below for times) and the film presentation. Outside the enclosure, the cosy tavern and the large adventure play area encourage visitors to stay a little longer. Trails suitable for prams and wheelchairs, disabled-accessible toilets and the large, free car park complete the offer.

Feedingtime:

Affenberg employees feed the animals at specific times and provide visitors with a lot of interesting facts about their protégés.
