Sniflheim is a city in Dragon Quest XI. Located in north-west Erdrea, it is one of the world's five crown cities. It is notable for its brutally cold climate, though its citizens are genuinely warm-hearted.

Based loosely on the modern Reykjavík, Iceland, residents of Sniflheim inject Icelandic phrases into their dialogue.

  • The first of Sniflheim's two major plot arcs is analogous to the events of Mt. Snowhere from Dragon Quest VI. The latter village also was encased in ice by a snow maiden before the heroes arrived to find out why.
  • Also in Act I, there is an allusion to the events of Coburg in Dragon Quest V, wherein a monster impersonates its queen dowager before being revealed.
Thou hast defeated the spoiler.


Being a northern city where one may catch a common cold, a play on "sniffle" with the Germanic suffix ‑heim added, meaning "home". Thus, Sniflheim can be read as "home of the sniffles".
