To clarify the direction of travel - is it Munich where you'll enter the Schengen area first? –  Gagravarr Jan 11 at 12:05

For the Short Stay visa the state where it should be applied at is the state where you will spend the longest time. Since this is not going to stay in Schengen area this shifts to the country of entry in this case Germany.

However the transit visa does not apply to you and you will need a visitors' visa since you're transiting through 2 airports in Schengen area. See Important Note concerning Airport transit last paragraph item 2.
