About
The Karnan tower is a place to visit for the whole family. In the beautiful Slottshagsparken above Terasstrapporna in the centre of Helsingborg you’ll find the medieval Karnan castle tower. Karnan 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, Oresund and Helsingor. There is a long and adventurous, rather narrow spiral staircase leading to the top, but the stunning view makes it worth the effort. The Karnan tower was built in the early 1300s. The tower was part of a major castle site that had the status of “riksborg” (national castle) in the medieval and early Danish empire. Nowadays, it is the symbol and brand of the city of Helsingborg.

My husband and I enjoyed climbing up the tower to see the magnificent view of Helsingborg. On the way up, there are a couple of floors where you can stop to learn more about the tower and its' past. Really worth visiting!

It's a lovely old place from where you can see the whole city below you. You can get really nice photos, especially on the stairs below the tower. Unfortunately, during winter months the tower is closed for climbing so we couldn't go up.

This was the first stop on our trip to Helsingborg. It was really good. Small castle, with a steep walk up to the top. Each level has something different to see and explore. The view from the top was amazing. You could see well into Denmark. It was relatively cheap to enter too. Definitely recommend this.

A nice, ancient, tower that you can climb to enjoy even a better view of the city then from the Terrasstraporna. An entrance fee is applicable for adults.

The view from here is good and one can look across the channel into Helsingor Danmark, or you can sit and watch the ships float past.
