The view is lovely for sure but really overpriced. 9 euro to go into a lift seems a little extreme. You do get to see the entire town though which was nice.

The church itself is impressive and there was a lovely gallery on display in the main hall when we arrived. The lift takes a little while to get to the top but once there, the view is simply amazing. It generally costs €9 for access...More

It was€ 3 to go inside the church or €9 to include going up to the tower. Worth paying the extra for spectacular views over city.

A Beautiful view of the city. Very recommended. This is something you have to do if you spend a day in Riga. Very close to the church you will find nice restaurante and coffee shops

There was a clear view of surrounding Riga meaning you could see where the different buildings were in relation to each other. Something which, when walking around the cobbled streets, is difficult to understand.

Slightly bizarre lift / staff experience, but good views. A great perspective over Riga which helps you get your bearings!

You can see 360 degrees of Riga from above. Sunny or rainy day, the views are spectacular. It is good to see the curvy streets from bird's view.

You can see the entire Riga city and Old Riga as well from the top of the St. Peter's Church. It's always windy over there, so take some windproof warm clothes with you to enjoy your visit. And I don't recommend to visit St. Peter's...More

Pretty expensive but definitely is worth it since I think this is the best viewpoint over the city. You will have a very nice view over the Old city of Riga.
