The other world, sometimes also referred to as the other world or other world, with all its mythical places and beings exists in another, alien dimension.


According to legends and stories, the Otherworld is hidden on distant islands, in mountains or on the bottom of deep lakes. Sometimes, in rare cases, a person can also enter the realm of the Otherworld - access to this world leads, for example, through caves in a mountain.


Unlike in other religions, the Other World can be entered and left again by living or deceased people, usually with the consent of the Otherworld residents, but also without.



Entry into the Otherworld

According to the Celts, but also witches and Wicca followers, there are, on the one hand, the so-called threshold places where a transition into the Otherworld is possible, on the other hand, there are also certain threshold times where there is a connection between the worlds. So there are always opportunities to get into the Other World, but this also harbors dangers, since beings from the Other World can also enter the realm of humans.


The Celtic annual festivals such as Samhain and Beltane, now known as "Walpurgis Night" and "Halloween", are primarily referred to as threshold times. During these times, of course, inhabitants of the otherworld such as fairies, goblins, elves or trolls can appear in this world with good or bad intentions.

The most important places and inhabitants of the Otherworld are presented in detail at Geisterportal.com.
