Citizens of certain countries need to apply for an airport transit visa, which authorizes them to pass through the international transit zone at a Schengen State airport and to await a connecting flight to a non-Schengen Country.
Entry clearance requirements depend on the citizenship of the applicant. Nationals of certain countries are required to be in possession of an airport transit visa when passing through the international transit area of airports in the Schengen area. You may find a full list on the website of the German Missions to the United States and on the website of the European Commission.
