Weird City Names : Fucking in Austria

A small village in Austria.

Have you ever been to Fucking? I am sure that most of you think I am a fool and what a nonsense question it is. I know some of you are ready to criticize my grammar or my writing skills. I am here to change your thoughts about Fucking.

I met a chatter whose name is Ulrich in my favourite chat channel. She was very sweet and charming girl. I spoke with her for fifteen minutes. I was stunned when she told me that she lived in small village called Fucking.For a sudden, I thought that she was joking with me. She was serious and insisted on living there. I opened my Google Earth map and searched for Fucking. She was right.There has been a village called Fucking for more than 1400 years.

Fucking: A small village in Austria

Fucking is a small village in Upper Austria. The exact location is 33 kilometers north of Salzburg and near German border. It is in the municipality of Tarsdorf.

It takes it’s name from a traveller whose name is Focko. As far as I know, Focko is the name of a man who travelled this village in the 6th century. Fucking means “the place of Focko’s people”.

The most surprising thing in Fucking is the traffic signs at the entrance and exit of the village. Most of the people seeing this sign stop there and take the photo of it. However, this sign has been stolen many times.

Fucking is rich in oxygen and fresh air since it is situated in the forest region. Due to it’s natural beauty, it is one of the beautiful picnic areas of Tarsdorf. Even though it is a very small village and it’s population is only 93, it is one of the well-known villages in Austria as a natural result of media interest.

Would you like to go Fucking and be one of the Fuckers? So, this is your guide.

Great post. I guess I’m probably missing the point of this article completely, but it was a unique city to write about lonely ;)

What I love is the fact that just over the German border there’s a town called Tittmoning.

Great article, and nice that you chose the name as a title, for I’m sure most who read and viewed had some very nasty thoughts in mind. :) just as I did. I did hear about this town before but actually also believed my friend was fibbing. Thanks for sharing, and fantastic.

I do have to admit, I went to check you out before approving you as one of my friends and I saw this article first. It jumped out at me. I thought, “Oh no he didn’t!” I started to just move on but figured, heck why not see why he hasn’t been flagged yet. So, I did. I have to admit also, I was wrong about you, you’re not a jerk. Sorry, I am impressed with this one. It even took me by surprise that anyone would have the guts to name a place this. I’m glad I don’t live there. Can you imagine telling someone that? Not me. I’d move that’s for sure. Thanks for the info. this one is really different.

That’s an eye catching title. The lesson: Don’t judge a book by its cover.

Ulrich is a boys name and never, ever a girls name – you can be sure of that. Germany and Austria have fairly strict naming laws, which prevent parents from giving their children gender-inappropriate names. The female version would be Ulrike.

I never heard of a town in Austria that uses a profanity as its name. But then again, I would not bother visiting there on a trip to Europe!
