The Goldenke is a 4 kilometre long tributary of the Sieber, north of the village of Sieber in the district of Osterode am Harz in Lower Saxony. It rises at a height of 800 metres in the vicinity of the Hanskühnenburg on the ridge of Auf dem Acker, by the Goldenkerklippe crags. It then flows mainly in a southerly direction and empties into the River Sieber in the village of the same name.
