Kalkbrottsloppet 2019 - great fun and an amazing run!

This year's Kalkbrottsloppet was on the earlier date of 31st August and it was great fun!  Warm and well supported, this event saw several hundred runners setting off down the slope into Limhamn's Kalkbrott for a timed run of just over 5km.

We can't wait to do it again next year!

Kalbrottet.nu - photos from the last month

The amazing weather has let me take some beautiful photos of Kalkbrottet and the surrounding area in Limhamn and Malmo recently.  These are 2 of my favourite Kalkbrottet photos from the last few weeks and you can follow me @kalkbrottet.nu on Instagram for more!

and this one:

Top of the Turning Torso tour - Malmo

The Turning Torso skyscraper in Malmo is Northern Europe's tallest building and this summer they allowed visitors to go to the top!  Tickets were booked through turningtorso.se and on selected days HSB took groups to the 54th floor.

There was a presentation about the history of the Turning Torso skyscraper (in Swedish) with a slide show that showed photos from Malmo's past.  This slide show also gave facts and figures about the Turning Torso and showed how the Turning Torso was built.

We were then free to look around the whole top floor of the Turning Torso.  There were even telescopes that we could use to look into the distance at Denmark and the surrounding areas of Malmo and Limhamn.  The views were great and we could see for a long way.

My favourite view from the Turning Torso was this one - looking out to Limhamn, the bridge and the Kalkbrott!
