The Turning Torso is amazing to look at. The artitecture is fantastic and every time I go to The Tower, I something new to look at! The area in Västra Hamnen is also worth paying a visit.

This is certainly the only significant attraction in Malmö. The architecture of the Tower is really impressive. but after spending 10 minutes at ist foot, quick back in the car and drive away. The district is really not worth spending too much time. When visiting Copenhague, most of People take also the opportunity to visit Malmö. nNot very good idea,... More

If you have even a passing interest in architecture, this is a must-see in the city. I must have taken a hundred shots of it from all angles... a truly stunning building. It also helps that it has a delightful collection of modern apartments in a range of styles close by, set beside a little stream and just minutes from... More

This is definitely worth a visit if you are interested in architecture, design or the Malmö Murder novels of Torquil McLeod. Despite what some other reviewers have said it is possible to visit the inside of the building, we booked a tour via the Malmö official visitor website. The tour is in Swedish but the lovely guide spoke with us... More

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
