Seriously? This is a a residential building-so you definitely can't get inside. Nothing to really see but the facade. Interesting just because there's not much there really...

Certainly it is an interesting building with unusual architecture. The harbor area nearby was more enjoyable. The weather was thoroughly conducive to sitting or lying on a bench relaxing and taking in the view. While we spent 15 minutes admiring the building, we spend a couple hours at the promenade at the harbor. There are a number of busy restaurants... More

Not much to say about this - it's a cool tower from an architectural standpoint. However you can't go in it or up to the top for a view. Worth a look if you're in the area but don't go specifically to see it.

Although you can't visit the Turning Torso, or enjoy the view from the top, it is still a treat to see Santiago Calatrava's creation from close bye. Impressive as it is, you'll feel very small and a bit dizzy looking up from the foot. Modern architecture at its best!.

...so if you're in harbour's area you should go a few steps closer. Nice architecture but still a pity that there's no viewing platform: it's a 100% private house. There are better solutions for vistors in other cities having such extraordinary buildings.

We recently had a day in Malmo travelling out from Copenhagen on the train via the Oresund Bridge. I would certainly recommend an excursion to see the Turning Torso building and to marvel at this amazing feat of design and engineering. You can also appreciate a decent view of the Oresund bridge from the small promenade on the sea front.... More

I cycled out to see the Turning Torso, which was a great journey but when it comes down to it, it's just a cool tower! You can actually get great views of it from Slottsparen and Pildammarna (the two parks in town) so unless you have a bike, don't bother walking all the way out there!

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
