We really enjoyed the panoramic view of all Riga from the top of St Peter's Tower, not least because they thoughtfully put a lift in when the church was restored after huge WW2 damage. The very helpful cashier insisted on classing my tall 17 year...More

We were told about this by one of our walking tour guides. It was around €5 to get in. You go up in the lift past what looks like some flats/offices. We were told on the walking tour that the building is too old to...More

Brilliant views of Riga, a 'must' for photo's etc. Even suitable for for those with limited mobility, as an elevator takes the strain. Some stairs need to be climbed, to get to the elevator though, which is on the first floor !

It cost nine euros per person to use their elevator, and there is one operator, one high-chair, one heater in a crowded 10 person elevator. We dont think it worth the money as after the entrance, you still have to climb about 200 stairs to...More

The only scam had in Riga: 9€ for 30'' of elevator use! OK the 360 view above Riga from the church tower is very nice, but it does not deserve more than a couple of euros for the experience itself.

It's worth spending the money to go up the tower in order to get views over Riga. It's a bit of a squeeze in the lift - and typically some rude people pushed in front of others to get in first - and is also...More

9 euros to go to the top but worth every penny. You see the whole of Riga in its glory. It can get a little chilly up there so think about taking a coat.

The church is lovely, but going up the tower is a must. Riga is quite low city so on a really good day you can see really far! Absolutely lovely views of city. It cost approximately 9euros per person.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Is the 9 Euro entry fee for the tower, or for the Church itself? Or - can I visit the Church without going up the tower, for free?
