De Negen Werelden

The Negen Werelden (Nine Worlds) is an enthusiastic group of heathens who, as an asatru association, offer a safe haven for asatruers and those interested in asatru.

We celebrate blots and sumbels, organize theme meetings and conduct research into, for example, old customs. In these and other ways we give a modern interpretation to this ancient but very much alive religion; a current, everyday asatru that does justice to gods and ancestors, and to us and our time.

What is asatru?
Asatru literally means "faithful to the aesir". The ases and vanir together are the gods and goddesses of these lands, of us and our ancestors. They and the beings who live in this spirited world are still with us.

Back to the past?
The Germanic culture - and therefore also the religion - covers a large area and a large span of time. Much knowledge has been lost over the centuries. We are inspired by archaeology, history and literature, but also by each other and the gods and creatures around us. Nevertheless, it will probably never be possible to form a complete picture of asatru as it existed in the past - or exists now. That is not our goal either. We want to show that this ancient belief still has a place in this modern world.

The association aims to:
* Honoring the aesir and vanir, nature- and other beings and our ancestors as they were
worshiped in the past. Together they belong to the Germanic pre-Christian faith of these
regions.
* To be a meeting place or point of contact for those interested in and followers of asatru.
* To expand the knowledge about asatru and to promote the sharing and spreading of this
knowledge.
* To share the experience of asatru with like-minded people.

During Castlefest, visitors can get acquainted with this contemporary asatru. We provide various workshops and rituals. You can also stop by for a chat or a runic reading. And we’ll show that this ancient belief still has a place in this modern world.
