The Funniest Place on Earth to Be a Tourist

Fucking, Austria

IMAGINE YOU’RE ON YOUR WAY ACROSS THE AUSTRIAN-GERMAN BORDER as part of your private tour of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. You’re feeling hungry, kind of tired and even a little bit lonely. There’s not a sign of life for miles until something catches your eye which you can’t believe is not a typo.

You pull the fuck over…

Nice fucking bike.

Fucking, Austria is probably the closest humanity has ever come to naming a city “That’s What She Said.” This hamlet whose name translates into “[place of] Focko’s people,” has been the subject of unwanted English-speaking affection since GIs first came across it after World War II. Although home to only 104 “Fuckingers,” the town is regularly flooded with tourists and college students vying to steal some signs, solicit sex and basically ridicule the Fucking people’s entire Fucking way of life. However, in all fairness, the Fuckingers sort of set themselves up for this.

Actual translation: “Please, not so fast!”

Because of this clear communications problem, “There are no Fucking postcards” is a common expression in the area. Fuckingers have been hemorrhaging town signs for decades and have no love for tourists. However, this hasn’t stopped the rest of the planet from finding innovative ways to express their love of Fucking thanks to our loyal Mistress Internet.

Don’t we all.

Fucking, we at Playboy proudly salute you.
