The Eichtalpark is a park in Hinschenfelde in the Hamburg district of Wandsbek.

In the Eichtalpark in Hamburg Wandsbek you can marvel at over 1000 plant species. In spring, the Eichtalpark invites you to take a short bike ride followed by a picnic on the lush green spaces that stretch along the Wandse. Those coming from Ahrensburger Straße direct their gaze to the entrance structure, which was built almost 100 years after the park arrangement was established in 1927.

The park was built in 1830 by Lucas Lütkens, who was a successful Hamburg businessman at the time. The aim of the park was to supply the surrounding leather factories with oak bark and leaves. At the time, these provided the necessary tanning agents for the production of leather. 40 years later, Lütken's grandson, Caspar Oscar Lütkens, converted the plantation into a park - thus creating today's Eichtalpark.
