Every spring the Belgian Hallerbos blue forest turns into a natural wonderland. Without fail, millions of blooming bluebells work together to form a violet blue carpet on the forest floor.

The bluebells were blooming in mid April hen we were there, but not in the incredible numbers you see in some photographs, and that could of just been timing but I think more likely its the photos being taken at the absolute perfect time and lighting to make it seem more incredible than it really could ever be. Do not get me wrong it was very pretty but not worth a trip if this is the only reason you are coming tot he area.

That was an amazing experience. Seeing a forest with blue flower carpet alike. Fresh air and spring nuance just a few kilometers from Brussels. However, public facilities are disappointed. There should be a temporary small cafe for visitors during the season.

Our first trip to Brussels and we were there for 2 days only. We knew from the website that we would be visiting at the tail tail end of the bluebell season, and wondered if it would be worth it to go. We went the afternoon of April 26 (Friday) and are very glad we made the trip. We arrived around 2:30pm via rental car. Parked on the road just before Parking area #8. Very easy to find parking and was not particularly crowded. We spent approx. 90 minutes walking along the yellow trail. It was a beautiful walk and feels miles and miles away from Brussels (it was just a 30 minute drive). Attached are photos. A really nice way to spend part of an afternoon.

Dear All, It's hidden gem near Brussels. It's beautiful forest. You can reach by taking free shuttle from Hal/ Halle train station. The pickup point is just outside Hal station. You can reach Hal/ Halle from brussels noord/ midi by train. It takes approximately 20 minutes. The forest is walking tour with roads/ walking paths. You will be able to take your young kids in stroller but obviously you can go everywhere as its difficult to Carry stroller. There is good arrangement for toilets at many places. I did not see any arrangement for drinking water or food so please carry it with yourselves. The entry to forest is free and there are no shops so you dont need to carry much cash.
