The Colonial Palace at the Royal Museum for Central Africa is a unique historical location in the peaceful, natural environment of Tervuren.

A stunning base for Mother’s Day if you want to really spoil your mum. And why not combine a visit with a beautiful walk along the Royal Museum for Central Africa or a bike ride in the Sonian Forest?

Covering 4,421 hectares, the Sonian Forest is the largest woodland in Belgium. It encompasses trees that are over 200 years old and is home to a huge range of animals.

The Hallerbos (the Blue Forest) is the most important and extensive woodland area between the Zenne and Sonien. The forest is a real crowd-pleaser thanks to the stunning blue carpet of wild hyacinths that bloom in the middle of April. The varied landscape offers stunning walking opportunities and makes a visit to this area more than worthwhile.

When you see the young, fresh green beech leaves that are just appearing on the trees, you’ll understand why photographers and nature enthusiasts come to see this amazing woodland from far and wide. Forests with woodland hyacinths are unique in the world.

2 hyacinth walks :

On this day, you are advised to choose between the two signposted hyacinth walks of either 4.8 km or 5.1 km through the woods. If you are feeling fit enough, you could opt to combine the two.

Participants can start when they like, there are no time limits on this activity.


Participation pack :

  • Hallerbos hiking map
  • The organization provides an EY voucher for a picnic.
  • Each participant is insured (personal accidents and medical costs)

The map and vouchers will be provided beforehand. There are toilets in both car parks.

At this time of year, the forest is very popular with tourists. So much so, in fact, that there are shuttle buses which run from the centre of Halle to the forest. So be aware that it may be very busy and parking spaces may be hard to find.


Parking location :

Parking 1 : Hogebermweg, 1500 Halle

Parking 11 : Houtveld, 1500 Halle


MORE INFO

The Hallerbos offers a very varied landscape; the marked hyacinth walks are not entirely suitable for wheelchair users. In the centre of the forest (from Achtdreven), right in the hyacinth zone, there is a flat path for less able individuals (1.8 km).

One of the most beautiful walks in the Ardennes!

The route leads walkers along the Ninglinspo, a small river that meanders through a mountainous valley in the province of Luik,  and through the stunning, green undulating landscape around Aywaille. A must for every walker!

A day to de-stress and let off steam in a beautiful natural setting; what could be better? Kids are also very welcome; it’s a great area for romping around and there are more than enough spots for building dams.

This is a ‘Family Welcome’ event:

Every EY employee can invite up to 5 family members to join at this event.
