Asgard is one of the Nine Worlds, more specifically the one inhabited by the Aesir tribe of Norse gods. Asgard is ruled over by Odin and his wife, Frigg.

History

The original Asgard is said to have been filled with houses of different gods near the/a area whom this god/goddess is connected to. For instance, the hall of Thor is at the highest and windiest top of Asgard.

Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard

The Sword of Summer

Gunilla takes Magnus up to a balcony on the roof of Valhalla and shows him the view of Asgard. She explains that the only ones allowed inside the city are those who have the express permission of Odin. She tells Magnus to take a closer look at the city and he notices that the whole city seems deserted, to which Gunilla states that in the 500 years she has been in Asgard she has never seen the gods this inactive.

The Hammer of Thor

When Magnus, Sam, Alex, Blitz and Hearth are being chased by Tiny and his group of giants through Jotunheim, the goddess Sif creates a portal inside a rowan tree and summons all five of them to her and Thor's palace, Bilskirnir, in Asgard.

Appearance

Asgard is described in The Sword of Summer as city of palaces, each as big and impressive as Hotel Valhalla. There are roofs made entirely of silver ingots, hammered-bronze doors "big enough to fly a B-1 bomber through", sturdy stone towers that pierce the clouds, streets paved in gold, and with each garden being "as vast as Boston Harbor." And circling the edge of the city are white ramparts that "made the Great Wall of China look like a baby fence." Asgard’s widest avenue runs through a gateway in the walls, beyond which, "the ground dissolves into multicoloured light" – a roadway of prismatic fire, the Bifrost rainbow bridge (leading from Asgard to Midgard). According to Magnus, the bridge is terrifying, with it "being a rainbow in the way a nuclear explosion is a mushroom."
