Salem Monkey Mountain


Large stork colony and more than 200 Barbary macaques at close range

Where else can you observe and photograph storks at close range? The idyllic entrance area to the Salem Monkey Rock offers an amazing view of numerous well-populated stork nests. If you then continue into Germany’s largest ape enclosure, you’ll come to the main attraction: more than 200 rare Barbary macaques populate the 20-acre woodland. You should definitely buy a bag of popcorn at the entrance; then the monkeys come up close and let you pet them. But be careful: the cunning animals sometimes hit the perplexed visitors on the hand and thus capture the whole bag at once.
