A refreshing piece of design, this is a skyscraper that appears to be like a body twisting and convoluting on its own longitudinal axis. It contains offices and a hotel.

You can't enter the building, but it is an amazing piece of architecture to view from outside and this is iconic of Malmo. The trip is made all the more worthwhile by the Green/organic supermarket next door which has a cafe with fab food (cheese cake especially good).

The area in which the Turning Torso is, is really nice especially in the summer. So while you see this landmark also bring your swimming gear and take a dip in the ocean. Can be seen from Amager on the Danish Coast. It has a great view.

This is a mesmerizing building in a neighbourhood under development. The views kept changing as we approached, and it wasn't until we were right in front of it that we understood its full enormity. I'd love to go back and get a look inside.

There's no reason not to go here if you're spending a day in Malmö. It's a five minute ride from the station on the #2 bus, which you can ride for free with your train ticket. You can't visit inside the building because it's residential. The parks right around the building and the Green market next to it are beautiful.... More

Great piece of architecture in Malmö. Definitely go to the Green shop next to the building and discover the other buildings in the neighborhood.

near the sea, incredible building. I've tried to catch it in one photo. I've liked if was possible to go up and see Malmo from there.
