A little in the shadow of the popular Alster foothills is its neighboring neighbor to the north, the small oak park in Harvestehude. It lives up to its name and is characterized by beautiful old trees. In addition to numerous oak trees, there is also a beautiful swamp cypress directly on the Alster, whose knee roots extend as far as the willow next door. Between them are waterfowl, especially gray geese, which have long become accustomed to visitors to the park.The Cistercian convent of Herwardeshude, which was founded around 1245 by Heilwig Countess von Schauenburg / Holstein, was once located on the site of today's oak park. The monastery building was demolished in 1530 as a result of the Reformation after it had stood here since 1295. The surrounding areas were probably used as pasture in the meantime. Later an inn was built on the site of the former monastery.hamburg.de/parkanlagen/3055658/eichenpark2
