Windy view

Spectacular walk inside, great heraldry. Nice and polite person operated elevator and great view! Unfortunately rainy and windy day, but still worth the ticket fee.

Decent view from the top, but at €9 each it's quite steep. The inside of the church itself is not that exciting but at the time of our visit they were displaying some local artwork which we thought were of a very high standard. I would visit again just to see them.

Wouldn't recommend this for children but it's worth visiting. It has an interesting history and great views plus there was an art exhibition inside

A place to visit. Beautiful architecture. Friendly staff. Central location. Photographs are not allowed, but you can purchase items from inside the church (which was not a problem).

Whilst visiting the Church hall, you can pay to go up the viewing tower. It offers great views of the old town and across the River.

Touring with my son and soon to be daughter in law they wanted to go to the top of St Peter church. I was sure I was up for climbing that many steps but ultimately decided I would give it a try. Imagine my relief when after just 4 flights of stairs we cam to a landing where there was... More

Beautiful church with a veiw from the tower if you want to go up and view the old town of Riga. I was lucky enough to see a stunning textile exhibition in the church at my visit. It cost three euros to go into church and nine to go up to the roof
