The forest of Blue bells/ Halle Forest/ Hallerbos, Belgium

The most enchanting place I have ever visited. Peace quiet and serene. 
Great place to take a walk on a bright sunny spring afternoon in late april. Its just like a fairy land with a magic blue carpet. If you are in the vicinity (around Belgium) in the month of April , don't miss out on this great forest, but check out the official website for the exact dates when the blue bells are in full bloom, before planning for a trip.

The forest is known in the region for its bluebell carpet which covers the forest floor for a few weeks each spring, attracting many visitors.[1][2]

Here is the translated link for the official website:

There is bus that leaves the Halle station on weekdays to the forest at regular intervals. Please checkout the timings in the website.

Enjoy the pictures!
