Want to travel to Veithurgard in God of War? Kratos has finally landed on PC, with his vast world of Norse gods. As you explore the many areas with Atreus, you may discover puzzles or locked doors that may leave you scratching your head.
Veithurgard is an optional area, accessible from Nine Lakes, but it’s not obvious how you get there. There’s a lot to discover as Kratos grunts his way through the various Nordic realms. If you want to collect the treasure maps and Nornir chests found around Midgard, you will need to unlock certain areas to access them.Note that there are some Slight spoilers the following. Here’s how to find the Veithurgard area and open the gates.
God of War Veithurgard: How to open the gates
Veithurgard is east of the Nine Lakes, and if you look for it on the map, it was initially shrouded in mist, just like any other undiscovered area. The entrance is between Stone Falls and Buri’s Storeroom, but if you sail through there by boat, you’ll come across a huge locked gate.
Once you know where to go, opening the door is very simple. Use the Stone Falls Dock next to the gate – the big chain goes through the area. The next part will depend on the level of the lake when you get here.
if you did not change the water level, ignore the viaduct on your right, and go through the open gate ahead of you. Take on the enemy here, then look to the left of the gate you just passed. You should be able to identify the disc supporting the bridge, so throw your axe to break it and drop the bridge. Then, go back through the gate and jump over the bridge. Immediately use the right wheel to open the huge gate in front of you.
If the lake level is low, keep going up until you reach a chain that takes you to an area with an iron gate and a viaduct on your left – don’t worry, the path is fairly linear. From here go towards the bridge and find the wheel on the left. Interact with it to open the door.
Once you open the gate, hop back into your boat and sail along the newly entered Veithurgard Pass until you reach a spot where you can dock. Take on more enemies here and climb the cliffs behind the area. Follow the most obvious path through Brok’s store, through the far crawl space. You’ll end up on another lake where you can take another boat. Congratulations, you have arrived in Veithurgard.
