Owner description: In the beautiful Slottshagsparken above Terasstrapporna in the centre of Helsingborg you’ll find the medieval Kärnan castle tower. Kärnan is about 35 metres high and it’s worth every single step up the stairs to reach the top and enjoy the magnificent views over the harbour, Öresund and Helsingör.Kärnan will close for restauration on the 5th of november.

“Helsingborg landmark!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Climb the stairs of the old fortress-tower and get a birdseye view of the city of Helsingborg and the harbour.
You will also see the busy strait between Helsingborg and Helsingör.
