A very special animal experience awaits you in Landskron, a town near Villach. The Landskron Monkey Mountain is a world-famous research station for Japanese macaques. Over 160 monkeys live here, which you can observe without the restriction of a cage or glass panels.
The swimming monkeys are a special attraction. There are two ponds where the Japanese macaques cool off, play or even dive for food. The monkeys are able to live a life that comes very close to their natural habitat.
Admission to the Affenberg is only possible with a guided tour and takes about 45 minutes. You can also book private tours with an experienced primatologist or zookeeper to have a look behind the scenes and visit the baby monkeys. It is also possible to feed the monkeys – but you should not try to pet them. If you want to immerse yourself in the universe of these animals, the Affenberg Landskron is your ideal destination!
Best season: spring, summer, autumn
Opening hours: Guided tours are available daily from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (April to October).
