I downloaded CentOS 7 from http://mirror.yourwebhoster.eu/centos/7/isos/x86_64/CentOS-7-x86_64-DVD-1503-01.iso and put it on to an USB.

But when starting the computer with the USB in it, I only get the option to install CentOS 7.CentOS 7 from USB

But I want to start CentOS 7 live from USB without any installation. Is that possible? How?

It is possible, but you need to use the live CD image instead of the installer image. On your mirror, the default live CD is available at http://mirror.yourwebhoster.eu/centos/7/isos/x86_64/CentOS-7-x86_64-LiveCD-1503.iso; in http://mirror.yourwebhoster.eu/centos/7/isos/x86_64/ you can find GNOME and KDE live CDs too.
