VALHALLA, OR KILL HALL


Odin’s hall is called Valhöll, which means ‘Kill Hall’. Kill Hall has 540 doors, each wide enough for 800 men to walk through side-by-side. The roof is tiled with Viking shields.

In the hall live fallen warriors called the Lone Warriors, who train every day for the last battle at the Doom of the Powers. In the evenings they feast on meat from a magic boar called Sea Sooty (Saehrimnir), and drink mead which flows from the teats of the goat Bright Secret (Heidrun).

You can read descriptions of Kill Hall in ‘The Aesir’ and ‘The Fight with Hrungnir’, Chapter 3 and Chapter 14 of 
Viking Myths: Stories of the Norse Gods and Goddesses.
