The Nine Worlds

The Nine Worlds of Norse Cosmology are nestled among the limbs of Yggdrasil the World Tree: the Upper Worlds of Asgard and Alfheim sit atop its canopy, the Lower Worlds of Nidavellr and Helheim lie below its roots, and the Middle World of Midgard is enclosed in a gap in its trunk.

The Near Worlds of Jotunheim and Vanaheim and the Far Worlds of Muspelheim and Niflheim hang from its middle branches, Niflheim to the cosmic “north” of Midgard, Muspelheim to the south, Jotunheim to the east, and Vanaheim to the west.
