The area is an interesting architectural and social attempt. I liked the design of the tower. A cafe on the top would be very popular!

Worth going to get a view - just, but it doesn't turn and it doesn't look like a torso. Yes, it's relatively interesting architecturally and you get a good view of the sea and the Oresund bridge nearby, but you can't go up it and it's quite a walk from town.

"Turning Torso" - a twisting building by the water is a big deal for Malmö and it has become a landmark. Standing alone and towering above the new housing estate that surrounds it, it is not really worth the trek. No access to the higher floors is a shame as tourists would have benefited from the expansive views it must... More

It is often cited as a top attraction in the city of Malmö, but I am not quite so sure why. It is a landmark, no doubt about that; visible from many parts of the city, and indeed the outer limits of Copenhagen. But beyond that it does not really do much other than house people in private rented flats.... More

Apparently, this is Europe's second-tallest residential building with apartments renting for up to €3,500/month -- it certainly dominates the city's skyline. Its very distinctive shape gives the appearance of a 90° twist between top and bottom. Worth a look and walk around if you're in the area but nothing more really possible.

Really unusual. Worth a visit to see the different architecture. Very different. Lovely modern development area. Nice bars on the waterfront.

From the photos it looks like it's turning but not when you see it up close. The building is different and unique in a way.

It is a residential building with a look like it is turned. It is not too impressive as other icon buildings from around the world/ For Malmo there are other buildings that can be considered icons.
