HALLERBOS: The Mystical Fairy Tale-like Blue Forest Of Belgium

The Hallerbos – also known as the Blue Forest – is covered with millions of bluebells from late April into May. The otherworldly transformation of the 1,360 acre woods has a floral carpet brushing up against the lean beech trees as far as your eye takes you.
Visitors can stroll the winding paths, and watch for rabbits and deer that wander through the green and azure woods. Foggy conditions are especially good for photographers, giving the woods a mysterious and ghostly atmosphere.
While the woods, located in the Halle municipality between Flanders and Wallonia, is not far from Brussels, it’s often overlooked by visitors. The phenomenon of ‘bluebell forests’ is not uncommon in Europe, particularly in its oldest woods, but the Hallerbos is unique for the density and beauty of its blooms.
Dense carpets of bluebells are usually an indicator that the forest in question is very old. This doesn’t necessarily mean that the trees in the area are old, only that the area has consistently remained wooded for at least 300-400 years.
