Long Description:
DE:
Die Poppelsdorfer Allee ist eine Prachtstraße in Bonn aus dem 17. Jahrhundert und verband früher mit einer Länge von genau einem Kilometer das Kurfürstliche Schloss (das heutige Universitäts-Hauptgebäude) mit dem Poppelsdorfer Schloss. Mit der Anlage der Bahnstrecke wurde die Straße um etwa 200 Meter verkürzt.

Die Allee ist gesäumt von Häusern aus der Gründerzeit. Zwischen den beiden Fahrspuren befinden sich Kastanien, Wiesenflächen und Rad- und Fußwege. Diese werden bei gutem Wetter häufig von den Bonnern für sportliche Aktivitäten aller Art genutzt. In unregelmäßigen Abständen werden auch Kunstwerke und Skulpturen ausgestellt.
