“On a clear day it's especially impressive...”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

In regard to the landscape, Riga is rather flat, so nothing obscures the view when you look around from a higher position, and this tower is quite enough to present you with a pleasant experience. Riga is lovely!

NB! It's usually really windy up there, even if it's quiet and still on the groundlevel, so mind the weather and you clothes.

“The view is breath taking!”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

An excellent view of Riga. Go here and not to the Skyline bar, which is a waste of money. The church tower is beautiful and the history is incredible. A must do for anyone in Riga. There is a lift to the top of the tower and there is a small fee to enter. There are a number of concessions for different age groups. We are students and received a discounted rate.

“Great sights”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

Went up in the lift to the top of this tower wonderful sights, but we chose a day when it rained and although it is a must to do maybe not when it is cold and wet as there is not a lot of shelter, but an interesting sight.

“Well, it's what you'd expect from a tower”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

You get there by buying a separate ticket in the church and taking a manned elevator to the top. Once there, you get the views you expect, and they're pretty good.
