BIFROST
Also known as BILFROST, ASBRU, RAINBOW-BRIDGE

The Rainbow Bridge. This is the gateway to [ASGARD], and only the worthy can gain admittance.

Next time you see a rainbow, look out for the red and orange flames running along the top — that's to keep out riff-raff. Look closer and you might just see the Gods making their way across for their daily get-together at Urd's Well.

Those with exceptional eyesight may even spot HEIMDALL at the other end standing guard.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Bifrost graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Bifrost movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Bifrost statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Bifrost. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
