“windy tower”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

we had a cloudy day, but still we could have good look of the hole city. We had great pictures! the wind was scary. the elevator was very slow. a bit expensive place. Inside the church is not so amazing.

“Bars ruin the photos”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

It's disappointing that there are bars around the viewpoint so you can only get a good photo if you stick your camera through the bars. It's not a good place if you want to get a nice photo of yourself in front of the view. Damn you, "safety requirements".

It cost me 7€ to go up which I thought was kind of expensive. At least you only have to climb a few stairs!

“Wiiiiiiiindy!!!”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

Superb views of the city and beyond. Make sure you go on a clear day or you won't see much. Also try to go on a not so windy day. It's safe and well enclosed but you really feel the elements up there!

“Outstanding Views”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

Well worth the not very much money that its costs to take the lift up to the observation platform. View is outstanding and 360 degrees. I went with snow on the ground and it looked SO beautiful. Whatever you do during your trip don't miss this. Opens at 1000 each morning.

“Best view of Riga”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

It is worth a trip up St Peter's church Tower to get a 360 degree view of Riga which will help with orientation too!
