The Kemmelberg(Heuvelland near Ypres) is known for its wild hyacinths that bloom in all their splendor every spring. So it is not at all true that they can only be seen in the "Hallerbos". In spring there are so many of them that, by analogy with the "Zwarteberg" and "'Rodeberg", you could speak of the "Paarseberg" at that time of year.
Flowering period of the wild hyacinth on the Kemmelberg
The forest hyacinths of the Kemmelberg come into bloom in spring. See our report of April 2020 on this subject. On average you can count on them beginning to show beautiful purple-blue flowers from mid-April. This lasts until, let's say, mid-May at the most. They grow almost everywhere on the Kemmelberg. Also the garden of the hotel restaurant Hostellerie Mont Kemmel **** is full of them.
Pictures of wild wood hyacinths on the Kemmelberg
During the flowering period on the Kemmelberg you can take a lot of very nice pictures, say real "posters" or "postcards". There are a lot of examples in our facebook album "The wood hyacinths of the Kemmelberg".
In the lobby of Hostellerie Mont Kemmel **** hangs also an impressive light wall with a very nice picture of the forest hyacinths. This photo measures no less than 8 m by 2.5 m: so 20 m² of viewing pleasure. Jump into the hotel to see the light wall. In the bar or on the terraces you can come and have a drink.
