It is difficult to understand why such as tower has been built in a city where space is not really an issue. We took a taxi to drive around the city. We passed in front of the HSBC tower. Its shape is interesting.

Our first view of this building was from the train journey across the bridge from Denmark, and it is eye-catching. However, when we went for a walk in the district around this tower block it seemed less impressive. This may be because there is an awful lot of construction going on in this part of the city.

The Turning Torso is nice to get a view of and the architecture is impressive, but apart from that there's not much to it. You can't go inside or get to the top because the building is full of residential apartments. Come to the west harbor on a warm day, see the Torso, have a cup of coffee and sit... More

I was just astonished at this amazing structure, even make so when I realised it was residential and not a bank or an office block investment. Amazing and a real miracle how it seems to defy the laws of physics!

I dislike this building as whole Vesterhamn. It is crazy place with number so caled modern, but in reality crazy and ugly buildings. It doesn't worth to visit.

There's not much to say about Turning Torso. There's not much to see either except for its futuristic appearance on the outside. It's definitely worth a visit but being close to the sea, I wouldn't recommend doing it on a rainy/windy day. I would recommend though when seeing it to take a walk along the sea. Getting to watch the... More

The turning torso is located near the sea in a beautiful location, and on the way you pass through several beautiful parks. It's worth visiting for the walk alone.

I was immpressed by the architecture. There are some nice little areas to ride around in on a bike. The building makes a great landmark for keeping your bearings as you bike the city

Love this building. It dominates the Malmo foreshore area and I have seen it on the bridge TV series. So excited to see it in real life, I had to up and hug it, which may have looked strange to the people working in there. I didn't care, was so great to be here. Must see ( and hug)

The turning torso is a pretty cool building, in an industrial/office non-residential area. It is the tallest building in Scandinavia and has won some architectural and engineering awards. It is accessible on foot and also by bus. I wouldnt recommend making a big deal out of this site though. There is a really nice park right beside the building and... More
