The tower of the church overs good views of the old town. Entry is however rather expensive and is separate from the entrance fee to the church itself

It's good to be able to go up to th viewing floor by lift and the views are very good. But 11 Euros for 3 floors is excessive. And they need to have info in English as they do in the whole of Riga
