Hallerbos is a forest in Belgium with many trails to walk, hike and bike. There are easy trails where people with mobility issues can enjoy a stroll around the forest or long hilly trails for experienced hikers.
The forest's main attraction is the bluebell carpet that lines the floor of the forest during its short season. Millions of bluebells color the forest floor purple for a few weeks of the year. This creates a spectacular scene that many travel to experience.
There are three main trails varying in length from 1.8 to 7 kilometers. As with most parks and public attractions in Europe, Hallerbos invites you to bring your dogs, as long as you keep them on a leash.
The beauty of the park is indescribable, however the bluebell season is short and its magical views die down by early summer. The forest management claims that the 7 to 10 days following the bluebell bloom are the best to visit the forest during the spring.
There are many other flowers, plants, trees, and animals native to the park so the bluebells are not the only attraction it holds. However, it is one of the most beautiful natural parks during this time of year in Belgium.
