Noted this in my review of the church itself, but in case someone only checks this location/entry - Very nice view, only one of its kind in Old Riga that I know of. A nice-to-do but not must-do, in my opinion. 11 euros per adult.

Maybe because you are high but not si much and all the details of the city centre are visible and Riga really look like a toy city made of different, scattered, beautifully coloured small houses...but I was bewitched by this view, worth the not inexpensive...More

A little walk up of 2 flights of stairs then the church elevastor whisks you up to the top of the tower. Views are amazing so take a little time to check out all areas. Fabulous view then head down to church gallery and look...More

At 11 euros bit of a tourist trap . It's only 5 euros from the tall Russian building and same view or go to the Art museum in the park and get a super view from the roof terrace .

The ticket was a little expensive. But the view itself is great. You take an elevator to the tower. There were a lot of people up there so it was a bit hard to take pictures.

Costs 9 Eur per person, but the view is very beautiful. One of the main symbols of Riga. Worth a visit.
