|Driving to Markkula|
Markkula is located near the Southern border of Häme lääni in the municipality of Loppi in the inner armpit of the Loppijärvi.
ROUTE 1 - From Riihimäki through Loppi town center church
From Riihimäki the road to the West takes around 20km to reach Loppi. When turning from the road to the left to go to enter the Loppi town center continue driving straight past the church and continue around 5.4km from the church alongside the northern side of Loppijärvi. Continue until a sign to the left cites JÄRVENTAUSTA (picture in left column). Turn left here and follow this road for 4.2 km until you reach a small hilltop before a field, here you will see a row of postboxes and a white street sign sign that states KALLAKSENTIE (picture) pointing slightly to the left. Drive along Kallaksentie for around 720m. A small strip of road steeply to the left and up leads to wooden cottages on top of the hill that has the number "72" on the wall, this is Markkula (picture). Should you drive past this road the road will end in about 50m in the front yards of an old manor and a municipal sauna.
ROUTE 2 - From Helsinki through Läyliäinen
When coming from Helsinki use the Hämeenlinna highway (road 3 & E12) and turn to road 132 towards Loppi and Klaukkala (picture). The road will lead you to Läyliäinen which you must drive through towards Loppi.
After passing the center of Läyliäinen by a kilometer and after entering the forest turn left where a sign states HEVOSOJA (picture). Continue around 6.5 km and you will reach the street sign KALLAKSENTIE (picture) from where it is 720m until you will reach Markkula as is described above.
