HSB Turning Torso, Malmo

3.8
#3 of 18 in Sightseeing in Malmo
Architectural Building Tourist Spot
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. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Malmo holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the HSB Turning Torso and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
