It is a really exciting and beautiful building. And the surroundings is too. That is the best thing and worst. If you are not at all interested in architecture, then the torso is not much to experience.

We travelled from Copenhagen across the Oresundsbroen Bridge as featured in the TV series. We parked our car and paid the fees , only to learn the Residential Tower is closed in the Winter and only takes bookings in the Summer. A notice in the car park to that effect would be helpful. The building itself was quite dramatic and... More

This building is private housing so you don't get to go in. We were interested in seeing how it met the ground, so we took a walk. I expected a really big bottom - not at all. There is a very open park across the street for photo ops. If you are not very interested in modern architecture, or it... More

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.

No wonder that the mind behind the Turning Torso is the Spanish archistar Santiago Calatrava's. Its design is very original: a 190 metres tall skyscraper, twisting 90 degrees from top to bottom. If you are in Malmö, it would be difficult to miss this futuristic building but I suggest to go to Western Harbour area of the city and take... More

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.
