"Broad-gleam." The dwelling of the god Baldr. It is enumerated among the abodes of the Æsir in Grímnismál:

Breidablik is the seventh,
where Baldr has
built for himself a hall,
in that land,
in which I know exists
the fewest crimes.

Snorri Sturluson places it in heaven and says that it is the fairest dwelling there, adding that in that place nothing may be unclean, obviously alluding to Baldr's "goodness."
