On weekend days during the bell season there are traditionally large crowds of visitors to the Hallerbos, which is not comfortable really and, moreover, not all that safe in Corona times. That is why we organize our walk on a Friday.
The period of hyacinths flowering is short, maximum 2 to 3 weeks. In the past, April 23 was the middle of that period, so that should be the ideal day to see the forest covered with bluebells.
In the afternoon, we will pay a short visit to the town center of Halle and the St. Martin’s Basilica, known for its Black Madonna and a place of pilgrimage for that reason.
Regarding lunch, we have to wait and see what will be possible in view of the Corona situation in April. If a group lunch is possible again, we will recommend a restaurant and a menu. However, participants are free to opt out of the group lunch and make their own arrangements. Therefore, the registration fee does not include lunch.
