Step back into a lavish Victorian era this Christmas at Castle Kilbride

Christmas is a special time to visit Castle Kilbride in Baden. All decked out in lavish Victorian décor and festive attire, every room in this magnificent 1877 home is decorated for the holidays. The table is set, the trees are trimmed, and the warmth and charm will kindle your holiday spirit. Plus for the first time, Dave Herner’s miniature Dickens Christmas Village will be on display in the Belvedere Gallery featuring over 120 miniature shops and buildings.

Don’t miss your opportunity to see Castle Kilbride in its holiday glitter and glamour at night with A Merry Victorian Christmas on Thursday, December 7th. Every room of the Italianate mansion will sparkle with themed trees and festive decorating, all of it showcasing influences from Scottish, German, and Victorian traditions. The event includes an evening tour of the Castle, live entertainment in the parlour by Celtic Crossing, and old-fashioned hot apple cider and cookies. If you’re looking for a special gift to give this holiday season, you can place a bid on one of many fabulous silent auction items available.
