Turning Torso Tours

The Turning Torso in Malmo is a neo-futurist residential skyscraper that has dominated the city’s skyline since it opened in 2005. At 190 meters tall, it is the tallest building in Scandinavia. The unique design is based on a white marble sculpture depicting a twisting human being known as the Twisting Torso. Built in nine segments of five-story pentagons, the top segment of the building is “twisted” 90 degrees from the bottom segment. The daring construction was featured on the Discovery Channel’s Extreme Engineering show and in 2006, Austrian daredevil Felix Baumgartner parachuted onto the building and then jumped off of it.

The 147 apartments inside the Turning Torso are spread out across 54 stories, each with a one-of-a-kind layout. Unfortunately, only two floors are open to the public and tours can be scheduled only in the summer months. Those lucky enough to go inside will enjoy superb views across Malmo and Copenhagen across the Oresund Straight.

Practical Info

The Turning Torso stands in Malmo’s West Harbor neighborhood, about three kilometers from Malmo Central Station.
