Perhaps the most famous village in Austria. It was founded around the 6th century by a Bavarian nobleman known as Focko and over the years, evolved from Vucchingen, Fukching, Fugkhing into Fucking. Locals were seemingly unaware of its English meaning until World War II, when they noticed an increasing number British and American soldiers getting photographed in various poses next to the entrance sign. Soon enough, to the ire of the villagers, tourists were visiting in hordes and asking for “Fucking Postcards” and stealing the road signs. To put the icing on the cake, the village council installed a sign beneath one of the “Fucking” signs with” Bitte – nicht so schnell!” (Please not so fast) written on it. Recently, the town has seemingly accepted its notoriety and hosted a music festival called “Festival of the Fuck Bands”.
