Affenberg Salem

Salem, Germany

Be among the Barbary macaques

It's a very special experience, because when you visit Affenberg Salem, you are right among the animals! Almost 200 Barbary macaques live here in optimal conditions on a 20-hectare piece of forest, just like in the wild.

Monkey fun for young and old

In Germany's most beautiful and spacious monkey enclosure, there are no bars or ditches separating visitors from the monkeys. There is the option of experiencing the Barbary macaques on 11 hanging bridges and 12 platforms at a height of up to 12 meters.

A 250m-long treewalk leads through the treetops of the old beech forest on the Affenberg. With around 50 breeding pairs, the largest free-flying stork colony in southern Germany raises its young here every year. A lively herd of fallow deer, a large adventure playground and a cozy beer garden complete the unique excursion experience on the Affenberg.
