Firearms through Frankfurt when leaving the airport
I have read numerous posts on going through Frankfurt to Namibia with firearms, and I am still a little unclear about any requirements if I leave the airport.
I am traveling on Delta from US to Frankfurt, connecting with Air Namibia to Windhoek. They have a baggage agreement and will check the bags from the US to Windhoek. I will not be taking possession of my firearms in Frankfurt. Here is my question- I'd like to leave the airport and go into Frankfurt, as we have a long layover. Since I am not taking possession of my firearms, do I need to complete a Firearms permit for Germany or do anything with the firearms, or can I just leave the airport transit area and go into Frankfurt without any worries?
Thanks so much!
