Good view over Riga but not worth 9 Euro per person. Tourist trap, just visit the main hall for 3 Euro.

Well worth the trip up in the rather cramped lift. We had the benefit of a clear ,cold December afternoon and we could see for miles . Wrap up well and give it a go ,

If the weather is good the view is really good. Unfortunately, we were on a rainy and windy day. 9€ per person is very expensive as for me. Elevator is operating once at ten minutes

The views from the tower are spectacular, but the price for simple and single ride is too much expensive. Visited the tower end of December. It was really windy! Finally EUR 9 for a chance to make some panoramic pictures and half a minute ride!...More

My wife and I really liked visiting St. Peter's Church because in addition to just walking around the inside, you got to take an elevator up to the level just below the tip of the spire. How cool is that? We didn't mind the 9...More
