Our minds need a respite from all the work we put it through every week. So, I decided to give myself a break and plan a visit to a destination that is pleasing to the eyes and the soul. I loved hiking around the breathtaking blossom fields so much that I decided to share my experience.
Yes, I am talking about Belgium’s one of the most beautiful landscapes, Haspengouw bloesemroute. If you wander towards Flanders in South Limburg, you will find gorgeous rolling hills, fruit trees, and fields adorned with blossoms.
The scenic views are nothing short of mesmerizing. The countryside holds incredible abbeys, castles, and orchards for tourists to take in the beauty of the Belgian landscapes.
Let’s delve into more details about the Belgian blossoms.
Ideal Time to Visit Haspengouw Blossoms
To get the most out of your visit, plan your tour around April. The cherry trees start blooming in late March, while apple and pear flowers begin to grow at the beginning of April. So, if you want to catch the Haspengouw bloesemroute at its best, you should visit it in mid-April. That’s when the flowers are in full bloom. At that time, you will find the pink, yellow, and white flowers scattered around the orchards. Sounds heavenly, doesn’t it?
The fragrance, pleasant weather, and exotic sights ensnared me. How could I leave without capturing some beautiful shots? So, I whipped my camera out and entrapped the unforgettable moment into my camera.
Standing in the middle of the trees, surrounded by the white blossoms, I have never felt so happy, relaxed, and serene.
Get the Best Out of your Visit to Haspengouw Blossoms
There are several ways you can trek through the blooming groves. If you are in no hurry, the best way to take in the beautiful sight is to walk around the woods. However, it can be tiresome, so you can also hop on a bicycle or motorbike to ride around the trails. Better yet, go to Bilzen and get on an electric golf cart to explore the countryside to your heart’s content.
Additionally, you can engage in different events and festivities set up by Limburgers. Some of the most entertaining activities include:
- The blossom lounge.
- Visiting Fruit farm and fruit auction.
- Tour Guides.
- Romantic candle-lit evening walks.
- Family picnic.
- Fun fruity treasure hunt around castles for kids.
You can indulge in these fun activities to get the best out of your Haspengouw Blossoms visit.
Imagine walking hand in hand with your loved one amidst the orchard, surrounded by candle-lit trees blooming with flowers. It is all so dreamy. In April, every Wednesday and Friday evening, you can enjoy strolling in the middle of the candle-lit fields. The evening walks start at 7:30 p.m., so if you want to take your date on a romantic excursion, that will be the ideal time to go there.
