Hallerbos: an ancient forest with young trees and lots of bluebells
Hallerbos – ‘The Blue Forest’ – is the most important and most extensive forest area between Zenne and Zoniën. The forest is a crowd favourite thanks to the beautiful purple carpet of bluebells, which bloom around mid-April. The giant Sequoia trees also make a visit to this forest more than worth it.
Update May 15th: for those who do not have to travel far by car to get to the forest: parking 1 Hogebermweg is accessible. Tourist trips by car are not allowed. This is to prevent the spreading of the coronavirus. The flowering period of the bluebells this year was very short and is over. The last beautiful day was April 20th. The ban on gathering remains valid, even in the forest.
Hallerbos is a public forest. It is administered by the Agency for Nature and Forest management – region Groenendaal – 02 658 24 60
