Valheim Hof is a hof in Korinth in the Faaborg-Midtfyn Municipality, Denmark. This is the first building of its kind in Denmark since the time of the Middle Ages. The temple was dedicated to the Nordic gods: Odin, Frigg and Thor. The building is 12 meters high and was built at the instigation of Danish designer, Jim Lyngvild.[1] The design is modeled on the excavations of the Uppåkra temple from the 7th century.[2]
