About halfway between Břeclav and Valtice, there is a small sacred building in a clearing in the middle of the forest. This three-sided Neo-Gothic chapel was completed in 1855 as the last building in the extensive Liechtenstein area.

The romantic building has an unusual triangular floor plan and is built of sandstone blocks. In the center of the chapel under the vault stands a statue of St. Hubert.

Orientation point for hunting

The chapel served as an important landscape point during princely parfors hunts. Saint Hubert, who, according to legend, converted to hunting in the 8th century as a result of an encounter with a deer, is the patron saint of hunters.
