The story behind its original name

F**king village which is right next to the German border was officially inhabited in around 1070. However, it is suggested that a sixth-century Bavarian nobleman named Focko was the person that founded this settlement. A map from 1825 also used the Fuking spelling. For those unknown, just across the Bavaria border in Germany is another village named Petting.

Now everyone is bidding adieu to the exotic name and "thanking it for its service"

It is explained that F**ing is the place where the Focko family lives. Obviously, for many years, the locals did not care about this because they did not use English in their daily life and after World War II, British and American soldiers stationed near Salzburg suddenly noticed the name of the village. They started to come together to F**king to take pictures with signs in the village.
