    The cross chapel in Engelskirchen-Loope is a small church building in the district of Ehreshoven. The chapel is a listed building.
    The chapel is located in Ehreshoven between the dam Ehreshoven I and the suspension bridge Kastor at the end of the western branch of the road Am Weidenbach near the dam.
    In the chapel, which is made of quarry stone, there is a simple, stone made of quarry stone altar. Above the altar there is a cross. The interior walls are whitewashed. On the pitched roof of the building is a ridge turret, in which a bell hangs.

    The year of construction of the chapel is unknown. A document from the year 1638 mentions a foundation of Count Adolf von Nesselrode from the year 1622 in favor of the chapel. After the construction of the nearby dam, which was completed in 1932, fell into disrepair and was partially destroyed by vandals. Citizens of the district and collegiate renewed the chapel at the beginning of the 21st century again.
