English speaking visitors might say that. ;) The locals would know how the place name is actually pronounced ... But if you are interested in a "special" beer, have a look here: http://www.fucking-hell.de/

Cool site about the vaguely rough names in the world. Has got some funny entries. What is missing: The northern German town of "Itzehoe".

... and near Bad Bederkesa (NI) you can find places such as Hymendorf and Fickmühlen. :) Also, in Schönberg (SH) it is a short walk from California to Brazil: http://www.kalifornien-und-brasilien-os ... oenberg.de

There is no listing in the EBT database for it, I wonder is it because the village is part of the municipality of Tarsdorf, which is listed? If I were to enter a note from Fucking, Austria today (obviously I can't) what would happen?

I've registered a note as "Fucking", but it was merged into the cityprfile of Tarsdorf, because Fucking belongs to its municipality (that's the policy of the Austrian EBT-database).


Just to explain the Fucking-situation:
I live in the Franking, only a few kilometres away from Fucking, and there is nothing in Fucking, I think not even a sidewalk. It only has 100 inhabitants and no council, mayor, no municipal office etc. It is a "Ortsteil" of Tarsdorf, that means it is part of the municipality Tarsdorf and for that reason it does not have a city profile.
I've already told eddy once, that the restaurant Lindlbauer is in the village "Haid" (another 50 inhabitants Ortsteil of Tarsdorf) and NOT in Fucking!
For more information visit the profile of Tarsdorf at Statistik Austria which lists the villages and its inhabitants.

I think the "Fucking" village-sign is theft protected because it was stolen once...
