A town called Fucking

There is a town in Austria called "Fucking." This Google map link shows that there are a number of Fucking roads there, and a quick fucking glance at the fucking satellite view shows a whole fucking lot of trees and farmland nearby. Fucking Link. (Thanks, Ken)

Reader comments: Guav says,

I took this picture in Germany last year: Link.


Flux says,

maybe before fucking, they should start with petting, which is a small town in bavaria: Link.
DKP says,
Fucking, Austria, Xeni? That is so fucking done! See my pal Claire's blog (Link), where she fucking sets forth every-fucking-thing about Fucking, Austria. Don't even get her started on Dildo, Newfoundland!

Actually, the people of Fucking, Upper Austria, have to cope with massive amounts of tourists and regularly disappearing road signs (at least until the signs were securely bolted or concreted to the ground). Link.
Tian says,
I was vacationing in Austria for the month of December. Of course, the trip is not complete without a visit to Fucking.

The town is fucking beautiful, no pun intended.

There is also another town called "Oberfucking" or "Upper Fucking", for those who like to be "on top" I guess. I have posted some photos from my trip here: Link.

Amber Kai says
Here's a link to a youtube video where Roseanne and Graham Norton make a phone call having to do with the unfortunately named town:
Axel says,
There is also a german bus tour operator named "Fücker". I found out about them seeing one of their coaches caught up in a traffic jam on Paris's Boulevard Périphérique; here is a picture: Link. They have a web site: Link.

Love BoingBoing!

i just want to tell you that there`s a village called "Killer" in Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany. I once wanted to camp there with some friends, but the big amount of snails near the close river (wich name is also Killer) made us quickly drive on. Killer snails! Google Maps: Link
Brian says,
You really cannot have a discussion of odd town names without mentioning Manly, Australia. It's on the other side of the harbor from Sydney. For a political bent, take a look at the Manly Council: Link.
Ben sez
As if you didn't have enough proof that the US was founded by more puritan folk, I give to you the more acceptably-named town of Intercourse, Pennsylvania. Link.
Anders Tørrisen says,
I bring you Hell, it's in my native country of Norway. "Temperatures in Hell can reach -20°C during winter."
Ix says,
This image (Link) translates into: "fucking, not so fast, please."
David says,
We shouldn't forget about Climax, MI and their annual Run to Climax race (Link)
blahbleh says
If you wanted a list of strange places, why not go to Wikipedia's list? Also check out this Wikipedia entry for Sexmoan (in Pampanga) and Die, France.
Don Thompson says,
There's a place in Broome County, New York State named 'Killawog'. If the reader has any appreciation of British slang then it's apparent why this could be construed as offensive.
VonGuard says,
Another town, another lewd name. Ever been to Fort Dick, California? JPEG link.
Tom Whipple says,
Your link to Climax, MI reminded me that it is only about 33 miles from Fertile to Climax (MN): Link.
Sam Pratt says,
There is also a Climax, NY -- and the neighboring towns, believe it or not, are Surprise and Coxsackie. Link.
Anonymous says,
No need to wait for more places to trickle in, here's a whole Wiki full. Plus the few from Boing Boing I added. Link.

  1. In the southwest of France, near Toulouse, there’s a town called Condom.

    Then there’s French Lick in Indiana, USA.

  2. You can’t ignore the lovely town of Bird in Hand, PA which is right next to Intercourse, PA. http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&hl=en&geocode=&saddr=Bird+in+Hand&daddr=Intercourse,+PA&sll=40.049431,-76.117916&sspn=0.094349,0.21904&ie=UTF8&z=14

    Also, here in Australia there’s Launching Place and Research, which are both in the same region (Yarra Valley). (OK, not as funny or weird as the others, but it’s still OK.) http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&hl=en&geocode=&saddr=Research&daddr=Launching+Place&doflg=ptk&sll=-37.722935,145.344315&sspn=0.194981,0.43808&ie=UTF8&ll=-37.716146,145.373497&spn=0.194999,0.43808&z=12
