Geography[edit]

Eißendorf borders the quarters of Heimfeld, Harburg, Wilstorf, and Marmstorf. Eißendorf is located in an undulating landscape at the northern edge of Harburg Hills. Its center, marked by the main road of Eißendorfer Straße, is situated in the valley of Göhlbachtal.

History[edit]

In 1332/33, the former village of Eißendorf, in 1450 called Eytzen-dorpe, was first mentioned. Eißendorf has been a Haufendorf (lit. clustered village), probably named after its founding settler.[2] Eißendorf belonged to Province of Hanover in Prussia, until the village was incorporated into Hamburg in 1937 by the Greater Hamburg Act, which came into force in 1938.[1]
