HSB Turning Torso
Vacation Travel Guide

Inspired by a sculpture and built using nine stacked cubes, this residential building is one of the most recognizable structures in Scandinavia.

Towering above the parks and Malmö’s green waterfront precinct is the HSB Turning Torso, one of Europe’s most eye-catching buildings. Inspired by a white marble sculpture called Twisting Torso, this 623-foot (190-meter) building has remarkable architecture, featuring a 90-degree twist.

The HSB Turning Torso was designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, who also created the sculpture it was based on. It is the tallest skyscraper in Sweden and features 147 apartments plus a gym, sauna and conference space. Each apartment has slanting windows, curving walls and oddly shaped rooms.

Because it is primarily a residential building, it is not usually possible to enter without being accompanied by a resident. On certain days however, some floors are open to the public. Check the website for dates and pre-booking is required.

Even if you can’t enter the building, the plaza and parks at its base are a great place to snap a photo. Arrive in the area at sunset to see the building’s 2,368 glass windows reflect the colors of the sky and the North Sea.

After you’ve seen the building, take an evening stroll along the canal that runs through the nearby Scaniaparken or sit along the waterfront promenade to watch the sun go down. Construction of the Turning Torso brought new life to the waterfront precinct here. Visit the pocket of modern bars and restaurants to sample craft beer, artisan coffee and some of the finest Scandinavian and international cuisine in the city.

The HSB Turning Torso is located in Västra Hamnen (the Western Harbor) of Malmo’s waterfront precinct. Except for certain days, it is not possible to enter without being invited. The area is a short bike ride from the city center but can also be reached by bus or car. There is metered parking available nearby.
