The name comes from the old estate Hupoldesroth, which was written mentioned first time in 950 A.C. Hubbelrath was a farming settlement with an old romanic church. After Hubbelrath became a part of Düsseldorf in 1975 Hubbelrath got three new settlements: Knittkuhl - its nucleus was the estate Knittkuhl, but it hasn't been a settlement before it became a part of Düsseldorf, the Stratenhof-settlement and the settlement Rotthäuser Weg. Knittkuhl looks like a small town of its own - with 2,000 inhabitants. In Hubbelrath there are a green fee and a caserne of the Bundeswehr.
