Live video feed: Belgian Agency for Nature and Forest preservation has a great website now which gives you a lot of information, but I highly recommend checking out their webcam which is updated 2-3 times a week to give the visitors updated live feed of the bloom.
When to go there: Off course end of April till May is your only chance to see the blue bells of Hallerbos, but that shouldn’t be the only time to plan a visit. Hallerbos is beautiful all the year round. You can go hiking in Hallerbos also in late summer and autumn when the forest is vibrant with fall colours and you can go mushrooms hunting in the forest.
Food and drinks: Even though there is a nice Italian restaurant at the entrance of the forest (Il Sorrento), I recommend the traditional Belgian tavern t’ Krisktse with local food and a great collection of Belgian beers (address: Kapittel 10 – 1500 Halle and make a reservation at +32 (0)2801421).
Flora and Fauna: Obviously, blue bells steal the show when you are in the forest, but there is so much more to look out for like the white blue bells which are very rare, wild rabbits playing around, deer peeping through the woods and the definitely the magical bird songs in offbeat areas of the forest.
