Jumalauta is 18 years old! That means we can finally drink beer, drive a car and vote. It's time to take the first cruise towards adulthood in the wonderful Härkälinna castle, as is tradition, where we shall do all those things and more.
The party place is once again Härkälinna in Hauho, Finland. The place is about 35 km from Hämeenlinna and 60 km from Tampere. For more information about the party place, check their website. We will of course have sauna which we'll try to keep warm whenever it's needed. The might be some small snacks, but otherwise it's basically bring-your-own-whatever There's a kitchen in the castle you can use freely, but please take care of your dishes (there is a dishwasher) and trash.
We have booked some cabins right next to the castle, which are available for our guests. Each of the cabins will of course have beds for a handful of people and they are also equipped with fridges, microwave ovens, bathrooms and other amenities. There's also beds for 20 or so people inside the castle in case you just want to crash there. The beds (both inside the castle and in the cabins) will have mattresses and pillows, but you should bring your own sleeping gear (e.g. sleeping bag or bed sheets, pillow cases etc.).
The partyplace is located in Hauho, about 35km from Hämeenlinna. The easiest way to get there is by your own car (or hitching a ride from your fellow Jumalauta members).
Drive 2.5km from Hauho on route 12 towards Lahti. Turn left to route 3223 (Sappee, Luopioinen) and drive about 2 km. Turn left on sign "Leppäniemen Hirsihuvilat" and drive down Leppäniementie about 2 km. When you arrive to a yellow farm house turn left and drive forward until you see the magnificent castle!
For GPS: Leppäniementie 196, 14700 Hauho
By public transport
You can get to Hämeenlinna by a train or a bus. Hauho also has a bus station. The party place is quite far from either, so please arrange someone to pick you up or be prepared to pay for a taxi. Organizers are not responsible for picking anyone up.
This is a private event. Please register at Eventbrite to get your invitation to the party. If you are not a Jumalauta member yet, don't worry — You will be when you enter the party place.
Regular ticket 30€
With the regular ticket you'll get access to the main party place and its amenities.
Premium ticket 50€
With the premium ticket, you'll get all the same amenities as the regular ticket, and you'll also get one place in a separate cabin. Because the cabin space is limited, you'll have to share the cabin with 4-5 friendly Jumalauta members.
We will send payment instructions to registered visitors at a later date.
