I would recommend going up the tower towards the end of your visit, its great fun to see where you have been and to map out your routes. Great views and only 7 euro!

It is a lovely thing to do and the views are lovely! However, if you are going in the winter, prepare for it to be absolutely freezing and very windy! You definitely need a hat and gloves on.

This is a beautiful building, with a serene and architecturally impressive interior. The view from the top of the spire is stunning, especially on a clear day. Breathtaking - both visually and literally, as the Baltic wind certainly blows the cobwebs away at that height!

I wanted to see the entire city from up high, and this view with all the old buildings and landmarks was well-worth it!

7 Euros to go up in a lift. A tiny observation platform on the spire of a very beautiful church. Cold. Very cold. Bitterly cold. And the view is fairly average, I thought.

The view from the top of the tower is simply spectacular. We did this first and we could then 'map out' where we wanted to go, as many of the top sights were visible. It was amazing to see the old town from up high.

nothing much but great views but if you're in Old City, it's a must visit. Gives you 360 view of the city.
