The Bode (169 km) is a western tributary of the Saale. It has two headwaters in the Harz Mountains. The largest dam system in the Harz Mountains is located in its catchment area. They are the Wendefurth Dam, the Rappbode Reservoir, the Rappbode Dam and the Königshütte Dam. The Mandelholz flood control reservoir dams the Kalten Bode when necessary.
The Harzer Grenzweg is a 91.4 km long signposted and thematically marked long-distance hiking trail in the Harz Mountains. The trail runs along the former inner-German border. Its elevation profile stretches üover about 1000 metres of altitude and makes part of the nature conservation project „Grünes Band Deutschland“ accessible. The signposting is a large G on a white background.
The Harzer Grenzweg begins at Rhoden, leads to Abbenrode and over the Brocken. It passes through Braunlage, Sorge, Hohegeiß, Zorge, Walkenried and Bad Sachsa. It ends at the Grenzlandmuseum Tettenborn.
The valley of the Warm and Cold Bode rivers in the Harz Mountains is known as the Bode Valley. A popular hiking destination is the ten-kilometre-long, gorge-like valley section between Treseburg and Thale. The Bodeschlucht is about 280 metres deep at the transition to the Harz foreland near Thale. It is a 474 ha nature reserve. The entire length of the Bodeschlucht can only be hiked. Climbing and hiking off the trails, mountain biking, canyoning, water hiking and rafting are prohibited for reasons of nature conservation.
The Bode Valley attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors every year and is one of the main tourist attractions in Saxony-Anhalt.
The Rappbode dam, built from 1952 to 1959, has a 106 m high dam wall and is the highest in Germany. The reservoir area is approx. 3.9 km and with a reservoir volume of approx. 110 million m, it is one of the largest drinking water reservoirs in Germany. Its task is to protect the towns in the Harz foothills from flooding and to supply drinking water to the residential areas and industry around Magdeburg.
The Rappbode has its source south of Benneckenstein and joins the Bode in the Wendefurt reservoir.
... After the voluntary merger with Elbingerrode, Bennekenstein, Elend and other towns, Hasselfelde belongs to the Oberharz am Brocken district in Saxony-Anhalt.

The term Oberharz also refers in a historical sense to the mining towns of Clausthal, Zellerfeld, St. Andreasberg, Altenau, Lauenthal, Wildenau and Grund.
