Hubert's Chapel is a Catholic chapel built in the Baroque style in honor of the patron saint of hunters – Saint Hubert. The church is located in the district of Dusseldorf-Angermund.

Historical documents mention the chapel in 1436 and at the beginning of the 17th century. The modern building of the chapel was erected in the 18th century.

At the beginning of the 20th century, on the day before the Ascension of the Lord, a procession was held to the chapel, in which schoolchildren took part. Before that, horsemen took part in the procession. In 1967, due to the emergency state of the chapel, the processions were stopped. In 1984, after restoration work, church processions were resumed. Nowadays, they are held annually before Palm Sunday on Friday.

The chapel was made in the shape of a rectangle. Inside the entrance portico, you can see the double coat of arms of 1730, which tells of the union of Messrs. Von Winkelhausen and the Waldbott von Bassenheim family. Previously, the altar housed the image of St. Hubert, roe deer and antlers hung on the walls.

At the beginning of the 20th century, reconstruction works were carried out in the chapel. Liturgical vessels and twelve images of the apostles were placed in the chapel. Two entrance windows were walled up. The apse has received a blue tint with gold stars.

The last restoration work was carried out in the early 1980s. Tainted oak rafters located above the altar were replaced with new fir ones, old paint and plaster were removed from the walls. The locked front doors and windows were also fitted with iron bars and prexiglas (organic glass).
