Kalstad is a location in Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria. It is a small, impoverished town with Middle Eastern-styled architecture, situated in southwestern Midgard. It serves as a gateway to the Sahma Desert.
Kalstad seems to have once been a rather prosperous settlement, as the powerful kingdom of Crell Monferaigne had its sights set on it. It attempted to invade at least four times, claiming the lives of two of Kalstad's most renowned warriors, Arcana and Rasheeka, during the fourth expedition in 724 C.C. However, it was never victorious and appears to have eventually lost interest after the climatic fortunes of the town changed. Kalstad has since been slowly consumed by the neighboring desert.

- Arcana, Sophalla, Circe, Fraudir and Rasheeka will appear in Kalstad when released.
- Kalstad is not seen or mentioned in any other Valkyrie Profile game. It can be assumed that the town was finally lost to the desert after the original events of Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria or destroyed in a war.
- Kalstad may be derived from the Dutch kaal (bare)  and stad (town) , the name thus meaning "bare town", a reference to its poverty. Alternatively, kal  could stem from a Slavic term for mud, in which case the name would be "mud town", which is also appropriate.
