Once a year in spring, for about a week in the second half of April, the Hallerbos (forest of Halle) in Belgium becomes covered with a carpet of bluebells. The timeframe in which bluebells are in full bloom is short. As soon as the beech trees get their first leaves, it takes only days for the flowers to fade away. Early morning sunlight makes the forest of Halle extra special when the forest becomes a truly magical place.
With it's location close to the outskirts of Brussels, the forest of Halle is a busy place most of the year. Naturally most people visit the forest in that magical week in spring.
