The lift up to the platform is slow and there is always a queue; for the cost of the trip, the views are unspectacular, The price of entry helps to keep the church building maintained - probably the best reason for going up the tower!

This trip up to the tower is well worth ride in the small rather cramped elevator. Try to get there early as it gets very busy and be careful. The lift goes from the 3 rd floor not from ground level.the viewing deck is also very crowded and you need a fine day to get the best views but once... More

Nice city views, good spot to get some nice photos. Was a bit crowded but not to bad. Lift is a bit costly but I think worth it. A must do in Riga.

The view is quite great to see Riga and the surroundings but 9€ for a small place to see the view with time is kinda too much.

I could see almost all Riga. The views were fantastic. You could see beutiful views of Riga Old Town. You will still get great views even in dreary day.

Lovely panoramic views of Riga. To get to the top you need to use a manned very slow elevator which was novel. Avoid peak hours/days due to slow lift and limited capacity.

For 9 euros you expect a bit more, but then again, the view of the city is nice. Nothing special. Very crowded so they could've benefited from controlling how many they send up at a time.

Despite visit on the top of this church costs 9 euro, visit is worth the money. Views of town at a height of 72 m without almost any exertion - elevator makes all work for the visitor :). Sunny weather is strongly recommended.

The church is beautifully located near the bank of Daugva River, inside the old city of Riga. Its Tower is over looking the old and new Riga, and the view is amazing. It is one of the Riga landmarks that you cannot miss.
