Breath taking view

The view is AMAZING. well it was kind of scary going up in the lift. Breath taking view! I'd recommend you to go on top of the St. Peter's church and enjoy the view!

The view was good but October/November can be cold at that higher level. The viewing area is quite narrow but the walkway is 360 degrees.

We always try to see the cities we visit from above. This place is perfect, even the views are not super impressive all sides. I wish if we were able to climb the tower later in the evening, during sunset.

When you stay on the viewing platform the wind from the river and sea fill you by the spirit of the town - wonderful 360 images. (cold in winter)

If you want to take some nice pics of Riga from above, this is the right place! You can reach the top of the tower by a lift. On the top the view is fantastic and without glass to disturb your photos. As written at the ticket office, be aware that the temperature might be very cold in a windy... More

Great location for an all-encompassing view of Riga. We visited it during bad weather and it was still interesting.

Very nice view to Riga from above. You can by the ticket in the ticket office in 1st floor of the tower. After you go up by lift and end in sight seeing platform. In sight seeing platform you can walk around and see all Riga city from above. No dislikes, liked everything.

Nice view but expensive for 9 euro. There is an elevator that takes you to the top. Not sure if it's worth the price.

Great vantage point but possibly not in Winter as our view was limited because of the dim daylight and misty conditions. Entry price of €9 per person to use the elevator seems excessive, also note you have to walk two flights of stairs to get the lift landing. The church itself is rather plain internally and nearly all the stained... More
