Anyone carrying cash when entering or leaving Germany must fulfil any obligation to declare or notify the authorities. This requirement also applies to securities and other means of payment, as well as valuables (such as expensive jewellery). If you fail to fulfil this obligation, you could face a heavy fine or even an investigation for suspected money laundering. In addition, the responsible tax office or tax investigation centre will usually be informed of the discovery of cash. This situation represents both an emotional burden and a legal challenge for those affected.
