Christmas At Biltmore Goes International
The history behind Christmas at Biltmore dates all the way back to 1895, when on Christmas Eve, the Vanderbilts opened their magnificent winter chateau to friends and family for the first time. Now, every year, the tradition continues with an amazing display of holiday décor.
Throughout the historic home you’ll discover 57 trees decorated for the holiday, including a 34-foot Fraser Fir that dominates the impressive Banquet Hall. You’ll also find 1,000 red and white poinsettias in the Winter Garden and other areas.
Perhaps the most unique way to take in the holiday at Biltmore is with their always-popular candlelight tour. Every evening through January 1 you can marvel at the multitude of lights and listen to the sounds of small musical ensembles stationed around the house.
