Les Hallerbos - a fabulous dream in reality

In a small European country Belgium, just south of Brussels, there is a real fairy tale forest – Hallerbos. Everyone who ever sees the beauty of this place will immediately believe in fairy tales.

Grown on the site of a centuries-old beech forest, virtually destroyed in World War II (although some specimens have since been found here), and occupying an area of ​​five and a half square kilometers, Hallerbos has a unique flora. Every year, in a rather short period of time, namely from the end of April to the beginning of May, billions of billions of flowers bloom here – wild hyacinths (they are also mouse hyacinths), in our country they are called viper onions or bells – having all kinds of shades of blue.

So these plants cover an amazing carpet with magnificent and unique patterns of the whole forest. During this period, many residents of the country and visitors visit Hallerbos for walks, either on foot, horse or bicycle, for there are paths and routes for them. By the way, all the tracks have either an asphalt covering, or are strewn with chips, so even in rainy weather it’s quite comfortable walking in the woods. Visitors can admire the flower patterns of ultramarine color, circling around trees, framing paths and rivulets. It is especially impressive to observe this unique beauty in the pre-dawn period, when there are still very few young green leaves on the trees through which the first sunrise rays of the sun make their way, and the hazy night haze has not yet come down – that’s when you can feel yourself in a real fairy forest.

It will begin to seem that just around the tree will appear some fairy creature – a kikimora, hurrying about their business, or mischievous elves who have arranged a boy’s bouzou. The blue forest, as Hallerbos is called, fascinates anyone, even a very skeptical traveler. And on children of any age in general makes an indelible impression. Believe me, it’s really worth seeing, it’s impossible to describe, and even the most imaginative imagination is unable to create images even roughly similar to what you’ll see in Hallerbos.
