The Bleicherode Hills in the counties of Nordhausen and Eichsfeld in North Thuringia are the east-southeastern foothills of the Ohm Hills in the Lower Eichsfeld. They reach a maximum height of 460.8 m above sea level at the summit of the Ziegenrück. Together with the Ohm Hills they cover an area of about 76 km² of which the Bleicherode Hills make up roughly 16 km² of the total landscape area.
The heavily wooded Bleicherode Hills are located between Buhla and Kraja to the north, Bleicherode to the east, Sollstedt to the south, Breitenworbis in the southwest and Haynrode to the northwest. They rise between the Krajaer Bach and the Bode to the north and the Wipper to the south. To the southeast is the Hainleite, to the south the Dün, whilst roughly to the southwest is the der Eichsfeld-Hainich-Werra Valley Nature Park. Their highest hill, the Ziegenrück, is situated about 1 km south-southeast of Buhla.
