We do love a nice walk through the woods in the fall. With all its beautiful colors and also smells, autumn is perhaps the most beautiful time of the year! Although spring is a tough competitor. That Belgium then has plenty of beautiful forests where you can hike is only a plus. So we headed out in search of the most beautiful forests for an autumn hike. You can find the list of our favorite forests below.

1 Blaasveldbroek

Blaasveldbroek is a beautiful forest located 10 kilometers from Mechelen. This forest has everything to offer, a beautiful nature with many autumn colors. But most importantly, a huge number of ponds running through the forest, creating a fun and unique atmosphere. In addition, you also have an otter and beaver island here where you have the chance to spot a wild beaver. Although you have to have some luck for this. For an autumn hike through the Blaasveldbroek, do put on sturdy walking shoes, because this forest is no less than 160 acres. In the middle of the forest you can also find a small petting zoo.
