This is certainly an interesting looking building from an architectural point of view. It is a head turner but don't expect to get in because it's part residential so you'll need a code to enter the building. Snap a few pictures from afar and walk on. Some constructions are going on there and within the next few years, that area... More

To get there from the central train station you will pass through the industrial part of the city as well as the the harbour. Some people may find it sketchy and not interresting, but i kind of loved it. We discovered plenty of cool playgrounds around the tower. Let me tell you, Malmö has awesome places for kids. Near the... More

Walked from the centre of Malmo without a map - just kept heading towards the tall building. Had to go through some decidedly dodgy parts of town on the way. Felt quite unsafe at times. Would recommend a map and sticking to the main roads or getting a taxi. The building itself is interesting but not sure it was worth... More

The Turning Torso is one of the most incredible buildings I've ever seen. I wish I could have gone inside it to see the apartments. Here's a link to the Wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turning_Torso You can bike right up to the base of the building. The district around it, the western harbor (Västra Hamnen) is nicely built up with seafront bike... More

I like this unconventional architecture. Can look at it for a long time. Next to the tower there is a completely new town quarter. Very calm area.

It is a residential apartment tower which looks as if it has been turned or rather twisted and is the tallest building in Sweden. Nothing more to do other than taking a photo.

It's a residential building, so one can only look from the outside. We walked out there from our hotel. kicked it at the skateboard park watch kids skate for a bit before continuing on to the Turning Torso. Took quite a few pictures from different distance. It's definitely unique. It was quite windy that day, so we didn't get to... More

The building itself is interesting, but we liked the surroundings better. Beautiful district, with a beach promenade and restaurants.

Turning Torso is the tallest skyscraper in Sweden and the Nordic countries, it is 190 metres high. Unfortunately it is not possible to go in to the building as it is a residential building, but it was nice to see it from the outside.
