Visited on a cold February afternoon but even so, the view was good and this was well worth a visit. The elevator is slow and not very big and there is not much room at the top so do not visit if it is busy.

The price for students is 7 euros and lets you take the elevator up to the tower and walk around inside the church. I think the normal price for adults is 9e.The view from the top was nice but we went there on a very grey and windy day so it was a very short visit for us.

Once you made your way up you enjoy a nice view, overviewing the Riga Oldtown and the river. I believe this attraction should not be missed once visiting the city

Riga old town is a small place so the view from the top of St Peter's Church Tower is well worth a visit. You can see the river, the old town squares, the railway station, the new town etc. If you go in winter, it'll be pretty cold up there. When I was there it was -11C! Your ticket will... More

Yes view was impressive but can get similar at lower cost including a coffee in the warmth of the Skybar at the Radisson hotel.

Excellent place to visit and well worth taking the tour version to go up on the roof. Some truly beautiful views. The views inside the church are also something to admire.
