The view from the tower is a pretty sight. Its a small compact place above there and way too windy. Either looking at the town below or the city far beyond, this is a must visit.

Worth the Euro 7 charge for this amazing view of the city of Riga. A camera is a must and the view will help you to plan which sights you are going to visit.

Definitely worth the visit! You can see all of the Old Town, Central market, Daugava river and city center. Sometimes can be quite windy.

Staff a bit surly, but the view was well worth the freezing temperatures and braving of stiff winds. There are wonderful views in all directions and the lift returns every 10 minutes. We spent 20 minutes up there; any longer and we would have had hypothermia.

A must see attraction while at Riga, cost €7, worth every cent..!!!, the church records dates back to 1209, it was reconstructed three times, all the reminiscence can be seen at the church preserved to its detail. Once on top of the tower, 360 degree view is a delight for all.

We decided to go up here whilst we waited for the City tour on a chilly February day. It costs 7Euros per person and the view from the top is very impressive, but as other reviewers have said, it's not a place to spend long on an even slightly windy day. The odd thing for me was the lift. Firstly... More

Excellent view of the city. I'd recommend taking in the view to get a sense of where the sights are in the old town.
