Fucking, Austria

Yup, as many people already know, it’s a real place, as we were reminded in this boing boing post yesterday, one that spawned a slew of responses listing other towns with such titilating names. According to Snopes, it’s named after Focko Fucking (pron. ‘fooking’) a town resident from the 6th century.

Getting there: If overwhelmed by the desire to get your photo taken next to a Fucking sign, its just to the north of Salzburg, or 308 km from Ljubljana. If you’d rather not rush and take your time on the way to Fucking, try starting in Petting, Germany, about an hour away.

Here’s the Fucking Travel Guide from VirtualTourist, with plenty of Fucking Photos and Fucking Tips from members.
