I saw it since I was crossing the Oresund bridge. Its a unique and nice design, located in a nice area. I really dont know what I expected and was like ok, Im here, take some photos and move on but walk down to the seaside to watch the bridge, its truely amazing.

Yes, you have to see it, it's the city's main attraction, etc. But unless you are interested in architecture, you will be just seeing a building. No fuss.

Difficult to imagine what attracts people to a building. Up close it's boring, and afar it is interesting but towers above everything else around it. Like some insecure person seeking attention.

It takes a while to walk from central Malmö to the Turning Torso but it is worth going to stand in what feels like the end of the world. In winter it is particularly bracing at the plane where the Baltic and North Sea meet. There is a brace park and marina with houseboats. You can even stick your toe... More

This is such a crazy building. I stood under it and just enjoyed the corkscrew effect. Take lots of pictures from afar and it will be amazing. Good memories.

Turning Torso may just be a building, which you can't enter. But seeing it from a distance (the beach for example) it makes a cool silhouette to Malmös skyline. Once you get close it's impressive high and the whole area in the west harbor is worth a visit!

This is a little off the beaten path but easily viewable on a clear day. It is a nice piece of architecture, but that's about it.

A Santiago Calatrava piece of sober proportions, the Turning Torso is Malmös new landmark and symbol of change. It stands in Malmös new Western Harbour, surrounded by modern day architecture. Tours are unfortunately not easy to come by but don't let that put you off visiting. This area is by the sea so choose a better weather day. A must... More

This addition to the West Harbor community definitely stands out..almost 200 meters high twisting 90 degrees to the top is a residental rental building designed by the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava..the only sad point is that there is no observation deck on top to make it a real attraction..probably intentional ..but unfortunate
