Discovering and photographing the unknown beauty of Europe
The Hallerbos is not only known for its beautiful bluebells, but also for its sequoias. There are 6 of them in the forest and you can find them when you do the Sequoia Walk, which is about 4 kilometers long. A map can be purchased at the tourist information of Halle.
The sequoias are actually some of the very few trees that survived the first World War. At that time, the Germans destroyed most of the forest, using the wood for the trenches. Most of the Hallerbos was replanted between 1930 – 1950.
You can see the sequoias towards the end of the walk, but the rest of the route is as equally beautiful and impressive. It’s the combination of the millions of bluebells, the hollow roads, the different kinds of trees and plants with their millions of shades of green.
