GERMANY TRANSIT VISAS:

Transit visas for Germany are required by all except those as noted above and those continuing their journey to a third country by the same or first connecting aircraft within 24 hours without leaving the airport transit area. There are conditions to this and this should be checked with embassy or consulate

Transit without a visa is not available if any of the subsequent destinations or transit locations are a Schengen country requiring a visa. Therefore, as the passenger is entering the Schengen territory, which is a borderless territory, those nationals of countries requiring a visa for any Schengen state, which they are entering, require a visa at all times. The transit facility is not generally available to persons making more than one intermediate stop in Germany. Where granted, it is in exceptional circumstances only
