It costs 9€ to go up this tower, which is double the price I paid for a huge lunch in a restaurant afterwards, but for the views there is nowhere better. First you have to get passed the very unfriendly woman who operates the lift, which was rather amusing since she was so interested in playing her game on her... More

9 euros to ride up the elevator to the viewing deck is probably among the most expensive entry prices to attractions in Riga but it's something I can highly recommend to do at least once, especially on a sunny day. We went up on a sunny but windy day. Didn't stay too long (thanks to the wind) but got some... More

Riga is a great city, small and cosy, charming and bright. I advise to visit it in the winter, it is all white, and then during the summer, it is warm and shiny !

€9 to go up in the lift but once you get to the top the view over the city is breathtaking. We were lucky it was a sunny day so we were able to see the city stretching out below us - would have been a waste of money if it had been misty like the next two days!

The small entrance fee is well worth it for the view that you get of the city. No high-rise buildings mean you get a good 360 degree view. Accessed by steps & lift. Wrap up if its cold & windy at street level - it'll be mighty cold at the top of the tower!

As other reviewers have stated price is a bit expensive to just ride up an elevator to see the view but hey many places just like this around the world are expensive. You do get great views.

The renovated metal tower is 123 meters high, and visitors can take an elevator to the second gallery at the height of 72 meters for €7. .From there you get tremendous views over the old town, the modern buildings and the river and bay area. It is quite cramped on the viewing platform so best to go up either during... More

This tower gives you an amazing view over Riga. We were really fascinated by how vast and flat the land was. However, at 9 euros this is expensive for a short visit up this tower, and cold up there!!!
