Currently, the tallest building in Scandinavia is the Turning Torso skyscraper in Malmo, Sweden. The white marble Neo Futurism building opened in 2005 and was designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. The building is said to represent a twisting human being. It stands at 190m in height. It is owned by HSB and is used mainly for residential and office purposes. The building also has an observation deck and restaurant, which are only open at certain times of the year.
If travelling by car, there is a parking lot close to the skyscraper at ‘Parking Malmo’. By bus, take the 2 or 84 buses which stop close the skyscraper.
Opening Times and Admission
The building is a residential building so is not open to the public to visit most of the year, there are set times in the year when the observation deck is open to the public. However, you can get close to the building and take in its unusual design by visiting the Western Harbour area of the city that has many bars and restaurants to enjoy.
