After selling Kockumskranen Turning Torso is the new land mark of Malmö. Every one in Malmö has some sort of relation to the building. As a teenager I thought that the building actually would spin around, a mistranslation of the word turning... You can see the building from most parts of Malmö, it's not necessary to go there unless you'd... More

We arrived at this stunning building a little after 1pm to find we had missed a tour by 10 minutes and a wait of nearly 2 hours for the next one. It is quite a walk from the city, but near the beach. That aside, the architecture is amazing.

Friends in gothenburg suggested we pop down as we were in Malmo for the day. It's a decent trot from city centre along the harbour and then through mostly industrial and business parks with a fair bit of regeneration construction at the time. You get a pretty good view of the torso and from that area a good view of... More

If visiting Malmo, it is a must visit place. Primary reason is this building itself is beutiful and other reason is that from waterfront next to this building gives best view of Oresund Bridge.

I was invited to a guided tour of Turning Turso with my work. This made me quite excited since I live in Malmö but had never been inside the most famous building of my hometown. And I was quite impressed and proud! We went to the conference room on the 54th floor and the view was amazing. It is by... More

The Turning Torso is impressive to see, especially in good weather (we have been there when it is foggy, and you can't see the top!); however, you can't access it, as it is mostly residential apartments. It would definitely be worth making a specific visit if there was a viewpoint, but as it stands, it is good to look at... More

I was not as impressed with the building as i thought i would be before i visited it. The area is undergoing transition after long crisis in 1980-1990s.

The Malmö building called "The Turning Torso" is one more of the architectural landmarks of Santiago Calatrava, despite its reported failure as a commercial venture. It is located somewhat far from to city center, but, since it is very large, it is possible to appreciate it from central vantage points, such as the Malmoe castle park.

If I consider the Turning Torso as a piece of architecture, it is marvellous and well worth seeing. If I think of it as a tourist attraction, it doesn't have much to offer. Do I go there? Yes. Often: No. It is a residential building which doesn't give tourists access. There is neither an observation platform nor a restaurant on... More
