Bösenrode is located between the southern Harz and Kyffhäuser mountains on the Thyra , over which the Thyratalbrücke of the federal highway 38 runs nearby . At the bottom of the Helmeniederung there is valuable arable land, the railway line from Halle to Nordhausen and the state road 3080.
The village of Bösenrode was first mentioned in a document in 1274. The mention of 1228 refers to a mention of a person's name in a chronical representation of the 16th century. In 1604 citizens from Berga, Görsbach , Schwenda , Uftrungen , Rosperwenda , Thürungen and Bösenrode saved a son of Count zu Stolberg . For this act they received the Siebengemeindewald , which they manage together again today.
Bösenrode belonged to the Kingdom of Hanover until 1866 , then until 1932 to the Hildesheim district of the Prussian province of Hanover and from 1932 to 1944/1945 to the Erfurt district of the Prussian province of Saxony . The parish of Ilfeld, as part of the consistorial district of Ilfeld, was only reclassified in 1974 from the Hanoverian to the (locally distant) Evangelical Lutheran Regional Church of Saxony and from 1982 belonged to the locally adjacent, albeit Uniate, Evangelical Church of the ecclesiastical province of Saxony (today the Evangelical Church in Central Germany ).
The noble von Rüxleben family was resident in the village.
