All reviews viewing platform two flights of stairs old town degree view lift takes st peter's church great view of the city wrap up warm skyline bar sunny day daugava river central market elevator windy euros viewpoint height
That is a nice view, but only through metal bars (for safety reasons), there is not much space on the platform and it is usually crowded. You can get beautiful shots of the city panorama from up there.
€ 9,- buys you a ticket for the lift (beware you have to walk up the stairs three levels first) up to the tower platform. The view around is great and you should not miss this. The ticket is also valid for the church.
Another must on your Riga visit. Summary:
- in the middle of Riga's Old Town
- easy access over some stairs and an elevator
- rather cheap for a tourist attraction (EUR 7 for students)
- great surround view of Riga and agglomaration
