For a few weeks per year the Hallerbos (Forest of Halle) transforms into a truly magical place when its forest floor is covered with a purple carpet of bluebells. Millions of little flowers are spread out over a wide area in the forest, creating something that you have never seen before. We arranged official forest guides to show us around. Learn about the forest’s rich history that goes back many centuries, as well its flora and fauna. There will be plenty of time for taking pictures and to simply enjoy these natural colours. Expat Club travels for the 5th consecutive year to the Hallerbos (always fully booked), and we hope to see you on board this year.

Hallerbos & Halle

The Hallerbos is situated close to the city of Halle in Flanders, about a 45-minute driving from central Brussels. It covers an area of well over 500 hectares, which is much smaller than the Sonian Forest (over 4000 hectares), but all in all it’s still a big forest where you can walk for hours. During our visit, we’ll take several scenic routes along many of the most beautiful parts, including many areas carpeted in bluebells (they are in many different places with huge areas that are covered).

After our visit to the forest, we are going to the town that gave the forest its name: Halle. Although the city has only about 35,000 inhabitants, it is very old and has a nice historic centre. Its town hall and the basilica are especially worth seeing. We will walk around here for some time before we head for the bar and have a nice drink on this Sunday afternoon. Our return is scheduled for about 19h00.

Comments

  • Please be respectful and don’t enter the areas with the bluebells. The forester has specifically asked us to convey this message to our group. Other tourists may walk, sit or even lie down between the bluebells to take a nice picture, but note that this is strictly forbidden. You will definitely harm the flowers as they are very delicate and will not grow there again!
  • It goes without saying that the blooming status of the flowers depends to a large extent on the weather conditions, during the day and in the weeks/months before our visit. We are definitely travelling in the right season though.
