Kärnan is a medieval castle.  The construction was based upon a single tower with narrow windows.  This is in start contrast to Malmöhus a renaissance castle and its large windows.  The only thing remaining for Kärnan is the large tower.  Below the tower you can see the foundations of the walls that once surrounded the tower.  Also the flat square area in front of the tower is where a church once stood.

Below the castle is a large ornate staircase leading from the harbor area of the town up to the tower.
