Oker is a borough of Goslar, capital of Goslar district in Lower Saxony, Germany. Formerly a town within Wolfenbüttel district since 1952, it was incorporated on 1 July 1972.
The settlement is situated on the northern edge of the Harz mountain range. The river Oker gives its name to the location, where the stream together with its Abzucht tributary leads out of the Oker valley between the Hahnenberg and Adenberg mountains in the south and the Sudmerberg hill in the north. Oker is divided into two unofficial districts: Oberoker south of the Vienenburg–Goslar railway line , and Unteroker north of it.
