Locals who reside in some of the offensively named locations have been so ridiculed by visitors and their bad jokes, that local councils have been forced to change these historic names. 

Fugging in western Austria, which dates back to the 11th century, was recently renamed from F*cking after it became a popular stop-off point for both the media and tourists to  ridicule. 

The Mayor of Fugging, where the residents are known as f*ckiners, said dozens of their signposts were stolen, resulting in local authorities having to erect new signs in theft-resistant concrete, helping the case for the name change.

A spokesperson for said: “Those looking for the most eccentric road trip this summer should look no further. From Spunkane in Kerry, Ireland to Condom in France, Europe delivers on providing outrageous locations to give the traditional road trip an extreme edge. 

“With some councils already having to change the names of places deemed offensive, many of these places may soon have to get rid of their quirky names. 

“Stick on your cheesy playlist and visit these crude spots all across Europe – make sure to take a selfie with the rudest signposts for the perfect social media post.”
