In the end, the 100 villagers decided it was enough. The minutes of the Council published yesterday show that the village, after almost 1,000 years of existence, will be called Fugging from January 1.
City Mayor Andrea Holzner said, “I confirm that it was indeed decided by the City Council. I won’t say more about it. ‘
Part of the municipality of Tarsdorf, north of Salzburg and near the German border, the village has long been a fool of the English-speaking media, cheerfully reporting local annoyance over the removal of signs.
In 2018, the pornographic website Pornhub said it offered free premium access to residents of F *** ing and cities with names like Titz, Germany or Big Beaver, Pennsylvania, in the United States.
