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. Take a look at our Malmo online trip itinerary planner to schedule your visit to HSB Turning Torso and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

HSB Turning Torso reviews
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.

High rise apartment block with a twist! Easily seen from all of Malmo I would imagine and therefore easily recognisable.

Tornado coming from the sky. It crowns South of Sweden
I did not go inside but stood outside and marveled at the building's shape and construction. This structure can be seen from all points and even from the Oresund Bridge and Copenhagen on the other side. I liked going here because there were no other tourists despite this being an architectural marvel.
