Ásgarðr (Old Norse Asgarðr = 'home of the Æsir') is the stronghold of the gods in Northern mythology. It is situated in Goðheimr and there are many nice buildings in Ásgarðr, such as Hliðskjálf, Iðavǫllr, Glaðsheimr (with Valhalla), Himinbjǫrg and Vingólf.

Ásgarðr is in the sky and the bridge Bifrǫst leads to it. [1] [2]
