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. 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.
