We walked to turning torso from our hotel near the little square. The area surrounding the tower is under a lot of construction, so it's a bit hard to get a good photo. It is interesting to see from different angles so ,ale sure to walk around it a bit.

It’s a tower with an interesting architecture. It’s worth to go close to it for the surroundings as it’s close to the sea where you can have a nice view of the Oresund bridge. Unfortunately I couldn’t go up the tower as the tours were only allowed on certain days. Also the sign saying which days the tours were allowed... More

Nothing really spectacular or special about this landmark if you have ever been to New York, Tokyo, Dubai etc. Interesting shape, but beyond that just your ordinary scy scraper. Interior consists entirely of apartments, so nothing to see there really, and off limits to tourists anyway. We never went up to the top though (there are guided tours where you... More

We called on at the turning torso on a day trip to Malmo and guided talks were being offered to the top. The concierge kindly squoze us in as we had not booked. Unfortunately the hour long talk about the tower was only in Swedish with no subtitles. A bit of a waste if time for us so if you... More

We came here after being in Dubai for a few days and the Turning Torso seemed very ordinary after the spectacular buildings in Dubai.

Most probably those who commented on Tripadvisor doesn't know, that one of the greatest architects our days, the Spanish Satiago Calatrava designed this building. Spectacular, and Malmö is very proud to have such a modern building in the city. Even if you are not for modern building, this is something breathtaking!

We didn't go into the building as I don't think they were taking people through on the day we were in town (also the sign wasn't in english so we couldn't work out how to arrange this). It is a spectacular building to go and visit anyway. There are nearby coffee shops and parkland along the foreshore so a great... More

Turning Torso in a residential building, unfortunately tourists are not able to enter the building. We passed the creek and walked to the water front where cool apartments are around. Of course You can also take a look from the distance away. That is all about.
