Resembling the famous Cayan Tower in Dubai, HSB Turning Torso represents the tallest building in Scandanavia and dominates the skyline. Santiago Calatrava designed this futuristic skyscraper, which was completed in 2005, based on his renowned sculpture of a twisting human body. Only two floors are available for public viewing, so scheduling a tour can be a challenge. Photograph its famous figure and explore the architectural detail of the building. When you're finished, you can stroll through the neighborhood; most visitors take time to see the nearby farmers' market. Later you can use the tower as a reference point to navigate the city.

  • Definitely a very interesting tower, it's quite a symbol of Malmo and can be seen from many places. We got a good view from the castle.

  • This tower building of the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava has been inaugurated in 2005. For now, it is the tallest building in whole Scandinavia. It is twisted around its axis for 90 degrees - as the underlying sculpture 'twisting torso'. There are bureaus and apartments within the building. A great example of modern architecture.
  • Great looking building however it's so far away. Recommend you hire a segway or bike to get here. There is no access into the building as it's a residential building. There is a gallery and cafe nearby, which talks about the building but has no views or anything. Personally do not think it's worth th effort to go here.
