Asgard is the place where most of the Norse gods and goddesses lived. It's kind of like Mt. Olympus of Greek mythology. You can reach it by a rainbow that serves as a bridge for both worlds. The problem is, the bridge is guarded by the god Heimdal.

In Germanic myth, Asgard was the fortress and home of the Aesir, the younger and more powerful gods who dominated the ancient legends the older gods were said to live in a place called Vanaheim.) Odin, the strongest of all, gave the stonemason Hrimthurs six months in which to build it; in return, Hrimthurs demanded to marry the fertility goddess Freya. The gods tried to trick him into not finishing the work before the deadline; in anger, the mason revealed that he was really a frost giant (the gods' mortal enemy.) Thor, the thunder god, then broke the giant's skull with his hammer. Thus Asgard was constructed free of charge; but the enmity between gods and giants would continue till the end of time.

Asgard was imagined as a huge, high stone palace, full of bright halls where the gods lived. It was linked to Midgard (earth) by a huge rainbow bridge, Bifrost.
