Every spring, Hallerbos or Bois de Hal, an absolutely gorgeous forest spanning over 552 hectares, is completely covered by a carpet of bluebell flowers.
To reach this forest near Brussels (Belgium), during the bluebell season, is a spectacular and unique experience, hard to describe in words. If you plan to visit it, it’s good to know that it would be better to do it during the week because during weekends the forest is crowded with tourists coming from all over the world to admire its beauty.
Also, a very important thing to preserve the natural heritage is the fact that picking flowers is strictly prohibited by law.
The fog that is formed pretty often in Hallerbos accentuates the mystic charm. In order to enjoy the nature with all your sense, you must visit the forest in the evening or early in the morning, because then the scent of the bluebell flowers is very powerful.
