Paris: Allée de Longchamp!

I am probably the only one who dares writes about this street as it is a border street between two departements Paris 75 and Hauts de Seine 92 or the cities of Neuilly-sur-Seine and Paris. Even if a dubious reputation at night, during the daytime is another story. The Allée de Longchamp has some interesting spots.

This is my brief story on this street of my road warrior trips to Paris. As I used to work in Suresnes and came over every day to Paris, this was the road most direct to get there by the Porte Maillot. I had the opportunity to see the transformation on buildings and night day action here.

Allée de Longchamp is in the Bois de Boulogne. Formerly located on the territory of Neuilly-sur-Seine annexed to Paris by decree of April 18, 1929.  It begins by the route from Porte des Sablons to Porte Maillot and ends at carrefour de Longchamp . It is 3000 meters long by 35 meters wide . This is the main road in the Bois de Boulogne! ,also known as the N185.


Some of the things right on it or a bit off are the pavillon d’Armenonville private parties, the racecourse Longchamp, the fav restos L’Auberge du Bonheur and La Grande Cascade. Also, right off porte Maillot the Petit Train for the Jardin d’Acclimatation.(see post)

This is a wonderful garden with nice children rides and mini petting zoo, and theater with a very nice little train ride my boys love it!  I have several posts on the Bois de Boulogne so wont repeat here but you can search in my blog for them.

This is a long alley and forested nice unique in the lungs of Paris daytime it has no rivals in my eternal Paris. You need long walks here and even I have zig zag it by car. right over the pont de Suresnes you can parked and walk to see racecourse and old windmill wonderful and my lunch at La Grande Cascade restaurant. From the Porte Maillot is another great walk to the jardin d’Acclimatation or the Fondation Louis Vuitton on a side street in about 14 minutes walk according to google as me never time it but it seems reasonable.


Just for reference the Paris tourist office on the Bois de Boulogne in English: Paris tourist office on the Bois de Boulogne

And if you to the Paris tourist office and type in Allée de Longchamp you get lots of things to see and do, for info here as too long to post: Paris tourist office on Allée de Longchamp things to see do

There you go a wonderful “out” street of my eternal Paris that is worth the detour, the Allée de Longchamp is romantic, marvelous and a real Parisian spot any time..Hope you have enjoy the tour.

And remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all!!!
