The fifth Glad-Home where, golden-bright
The Hall of Valhalla stands:
There Hropt (Odin), the Doomer, daily chooses
Warriors slain by weapons.
Easy to recognize for all who come there
Is Odin's lofty hall:
With spear-shafts and shields it is roofed,
Its benches are strewn with byrnies (chainmail).
Easy to recognize for all who come there
Is Odin's lofty hall:
The wolf lurks before the west door,
The eagle hovers above.

Five hundred and forty doors
Are built into bright Valhalla:
Eight hundred warriors through one door
Shall go out to fight with Fenris.


Odin is called Allfather because he is father of all the gods. He is also called Father of the Slain, because all those that fall in battle are the sons of his adopt on; for them he appoints Valhall.



The ninth Battle-Plain, where bright Freya
Decides where the warriors shall sit:
Half of the fallen follow the goddess,
And half belong to Odin.

Thorgerda: "I shall not eat until I sup with Freya". – Egil’s Saga

Nifleheim (Hel)

Hel he cast into Niflheim, and gave to her power over nine worlds, to apportion all abodes among those that were sent to her: that is, men dead of sickness or of old age. She has great possessions there; her walls are exceeding high and her gates great. Her hall is called Sleet-Cold; her dish, Hunger; Famine is her knife; Idler, her thrall; Sloven, her maidservant; Pit of Stumbling, her threshold, by which one enters; Disease, her bed; Gleaming Bale, her bed-hangings. She is half blue-black and half flesh-color (by which she is easily recognized), and very lowering and fierce.

38. A hall I saw, | far from the sun,
On Nastrond (corpse-beach) it stands, | and the doors face north,
Venom drops | through the smoke-vent down,
For around the walls | do serpents wind.
39. I saw there wading | through rivers wild
Treacherous men | and murderers too,
And workers of ill | with the wives of men;
There Nithhogg sucked | the blood of the slain,
And the wolf tore men; | would you know yet more?
-Völuspá 38-39
Aegir and Ran's Hall(Drowned Men)

"On bolster I sat
In Baldur's Mead erst,
And all songs that I could
To the king's daughter sang;
Now on Ran's bed belike
Must I soon be a-lying,
And another shall be
By Ingibiorg's side."
