Default As some of you know

I'm moving to Germany in a few weeks. I'm not boxing anything up, I'm only taking what I can fit im my 3 suitcases. Now I know there are probably past treads about this topic but I'm having difficulty finding them. But has anyone traveled overseas with their hookah in their checked luggage. If someone could point me in the right direction I would love you forever because I don't know what I'd do without my beloved Snow White!



*EDIT*
im not bringing any tobacco im just worried about the pipe itself.

your hookah will be fine. just check the german customs about flavoured tobacco.

ino for australia, comming into australia you can legally only bring in 250g without declaring and paying tax, but some people have brought up to 2kilos without being checked...

so find out about german customs.

you will be fine, i have travelled from dubai via amsterdam and london before with shisha and a hookah in my hand luggage with no problems. i got my bag search in amsterdam once, just a random one as i was walking through the airport, the guy just asked what it was, told him it was a shisha pipe and he was cool with it, didn't even take it out to look at it.

you might want to bubble wrap the vase for protection, also id tell the guys when you check in your luggage that its fragile so those shifty air port guys can be careful of it and not throw it like a soccer ball >.>

Never had any trouble transporting narghile stuff except the gorillas in the baggage department stomping on stuff. Customs shouldn't be an issue unless you have tobacco. Anyhow, I hope enjoy life in Germany. I visit there all the time business and I love the coastal part of the country.
