History

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]
