Loved-up couples flock to Bonktown

The Bavarian town of Poppenhausen (translated as ‘Bonktown) has decided to rebranded itself as a dirty weekend resort after town hall officials voted to start embracing the saucy title.

Residents in one of Germany’s rudest places have been driven bonkers by the name, despite it helping to boost tourism in the area.

Officials in Poppenhausen have now decided if you can’t beat them, join them.

‘We had lots of people coming to the town because of its name, because in German ‘Poppen’ is a slang word for making love,’ explained a town hall spokesman.

‘In the end we decided if you can’t ban them, at least make them comfortable.’

Day trippers are encouraged to take a stroll through a one mile long love lane situated in the middle of romantic woodland.

Should they get tired; couples can take a rest on one of many heart shaped wooden seats.

Alternatively they can test out the woodland’s specially made sloped double benches for couples to do what comes naturally.

Other exhibits to get visitors in the mood include a notice with how to say ‘I Love You’ in 100 different languages and a giant four leafed clover to bring newlyweds luck.

Local tourism manager Andrea Muller explained: ‘It’s all about love and encouraging couples to relax.’
