Wahrwelt (真世界城 (ヴァールヴェルト), Vāruveruto; German for "True World", Japanese for "True World Castle")[1] was the reconstructed Soul King Palace, created by Yhwach after the Quincy Emperor absorbed the Soul King.[2]


The Wahrwelt was created by bringing the Wandenreich city to the palace and placing the main palace at ground level while covering parts of it with ice.[3] The five floating cities were also connected to the Wandenreich city, thus creating a massive Quincy Zeichen; in the middle of the Wahrwelt was a massive, tower-like palace with Silbern on the top for his new stronghold. Yhwach labeled this new city the Wahrwelt because it would be the cornerstone of his new world.[4] One of the five branches forming the city is known as the Zwei Ast (2番枝街 (ヅヴァ・アスト), Zuvai Asuto; German for "Second Branch", Japanese for "Second Branch City").[5]


A Gate of the Sun used to access the Wahrwelt.

As it is located in the Royal Realm, only a few known methods exist to access the Wahrwelt. One such method, created by Yhwach, are multiple ornate metal plates known as Gates of the Sun (太陽の門, Taiyō no Mon).[6]

Another known method is to use a small Valley of Screams (叫谷, Kyōgoku), modified through specific Fullbringer powers.[7]
