You can see from here the whole city. Take a good zoom camera or quality binoculars and you will stay for more than an hour on the platform. I would also suggest to make this excursion after spending a few days in Riga and its neighbourhood because it is more interesting to see some already known landmarks.

We were very surprised when we got to the top at how little room there was. A decent view- but for €7 it's just not worth it

The cost for entry to the church and access to the left to the top of the tower is seven euros. Once at the top of the small viewing paltform there are magnificent panaroma views of the city and surrounds. There are also interesting displays showing the reconstruction of the tower. This is a popular attraction.

This is definitely the place to go when you visit Riga. There is a superb view of the city and surrounds from the top of the tower. It has a small space but well worth the effort of getting to the top. Make this a MUST DO in Riga.

We went up this on a beautiful day and the views from the top are outstanding. The viewing platform itself is quite small and the lift is claustrophobic but well worth putting up with it for the view of Riga. Something to see in all directions.

We did find this a little more crowded, especially in the lift! But the views were fantastic and it enabled you to see the shapes of the buildings from a different angle!

The panoramic view of Riga is stunning. The Daugava river is beautiful and you can almost hear all the old secrets from the viewing point.

You can see the whole of Riga from there, and the pictures will probably be amazing. On the other hand, so would be any pictures of a beautiful city from a high tower.
