Osterode lies between Sösestausee, Südharzer Karstgebirge and Lerbachtal. The landmark of the town is the old castle, which lies on the mountain spur between Sösesetal and Lerbachtal. The lively centre of the town is the Kornmarkt, the pedestrian zone of Osterode, which is framed by half-timbered houses. The weekly market still takes place here twice a week.
