Winterhold is a city located on the northeastern tip of Skyrim and is home to the prominent College of Winterhold. It was once a large, bustling and prosperous city. In 4E 122, a cataclysmic event known as the "Great Collapse" occurred, in which most of the city fell into the Sea of Ghosts. Winterhold now only consists of a few rudimentary buildings and the College of Winterhold, one of the only original structures still standing. Many of the remaining inhabitants of Winterhold suspect that the College caused the city's destruction. The College stands by the belief that it was caused as a result of the earthquake in Vivec and subsequent eruption of Red Mountain in Morrowind. The few remaining residents of Winterhold can usually be found "drinking their sorrows away" in the Frozen Hearth, and most of these characters can point you to local quests. Birna at "Birna's Oddments" can also sell you the Coral Dragon Claw for 50 septims, which you will need to investigate Yngol Barrow further.

For historical information about the city, see the lore article.

  • If you are sent to jail in Winterhold you do not actually go to a prison. Instead, you are sent to a cage inside an unmarked cave called the Chill, guarded by four frost atronachs. Guards will also mention this when you agree to go to prison by saying "Ha. Enjoy the Chill."
  • If you pay your bounty in Winterhold, the guard will give you the standard dialogue about confiscating stolen goods. You are transported outside the Jarl's Longhouse, but you lose nothing. This is due to the lack of an evidence chest anywhere in the hold.
  • Winterhold is the only Hold where you cannot buy or buildHF a house.
  • Random soldiers of the opposite faction may spawn near the town and attack the guards, if you aid them in killing the soldier it will count as an assault or murder, and they will turn hostile and attack.
