Malmö skylines and views
This part is about skylines and tall buildings. It is hard to see a skyline
of Malmö, cause there are no hills and there few tall buildings to get
up in and the
city center can hardly be seen from the sea. But I have manage to capture the skyline from some angels. Västra Hamnen/Bo01 is one of the few skylines
that can be seen from the water. The views of Bo01, Öresundsbron and the limestone quarry can be seen in the outskirts section.
The skyline was improved between 2003 and 2005 by Turning Torso, a famous controversial building that is much taller than all other buildings.
Skyline pic of the Västra Hamnen (West Harbour) area with Turning Torso, completed in 2003, seen to the left. Turning Torso is, at a height of 190m, Scandinavia's
tallest building. For more pics of the building, go to the Turning Torso section. Other siginificant buildings, though much lower, are the new WTC, Kockumshuset, the
glass building and Malmömässan, that is about to be torn down while taking this picture.

From northern Europe´s tallest ferris wheel(45m) at the amusement

Views of the city center from Dockan:
Slagthuset, Smörkontrollen, Skandiahuset, Petrikyrkan. There are plans to build a new highrise cluster at Carlsgatan to the left of this building.
Here also with Posthuset, a light house and Orkanen univeristy building.
Views from Orkanen, the new university building at Hjälmarekajen, next to the city center:
Turning Torso, Malmömässan, Dockan and Kockumshuset seen from Orkanen.
Öresundsbron seen from Orkanen.
This skyline will probably change a lot in the next 20 years as there are plans to build highrises up to 25 floor on Carlsgatan (middle).
Petrikyrkan, Savoy, Börshuest etv during Malmöfestivalen 2010. The bridge is one of Malmö's many new bridges.
The fancy colors of the "Hurricane" university building in front of St Bernard, a nightclub boat.
Skyline seen from Orkanen during Malmöfestivalen 2010. The post office building is the building to the left.
A closer look. The buildings are a bit far from each other, but with Scandinavian measures it is a nice little cluster!
Futuristic Malmö. X2000 passes by the ultramodern skyscraper Turning Torso and other highrises.
Skyline from Lidl´s roof near my home at Dalaplan. Towers from the left: Turning Torso(!), Folkskolan, Johanneskyrkan, Hilton. In the foreground: The large university hospital MAS. At the 2nd pic even Petrikyrkan is visible.
View from the same garage: The new emergency ward, a school, St Johannes church and Hilton and a newly rebult parking garage in the foreground, that now blocks the views somewhat. Compare the garage with how it looked before (the photo above this picture).
Södra Förstadsgatan seen from Hilton's external glass elevators.
If you climb up one of these high hills between the 2 commie block districts Holma and Kroksbäck, you can see the whole Malmö. The commie block districts in the outskirts are visible closest to the camera, and in the background you can see the more "wealthy" districts of Malmö and the city center. It is all pointed out together with the most important buildings.

Yes, you can even see Öresundsbron...
...and the wealthy suburb of Limhamn from the hills of Holma. And if you look far, can you see Copenhagen on the horizon?
