The first MiG-29 were delivered to East Germany in March 1988.
24 examples were received and with the Reunion of West and East Germany were taken over by the Luftwaffe.
They were based at Preschen in East Germany and equipped the 1st and 2nd Squadron of the JG-3. The Luftwaffe put the MiG-29 to many tests in Preschen, Manching, Wittmund and Deci and finally decided to keep them operational. The JG-3 became the Erprobungsgeschwader MiG-29 during that time and after the decision was made to keep them it became the JG73 and the MiG-29 equipped the 1st squadron of the JG-73. All MiG-29 were upgraded to comply with NATO-Standards (IFF, TACAN etc). The new homebase became Laage, as Preschen was quite near to Poland and the approach could have led aircraft over polish territory. The MiG-29 arrived at Laage at the end of 1994. In 1997 the 2nd Squadron equipped with F-4F moved to Laage coming from Pferdsfeld. Now the JG73 was complete.
In 1998 a second upgrade was started but only 7 MiG-29 received it. The second upgrade included the capability to take more fuel to enlarge the range. This made it possible to fly with this MiG-29 to Goose Bay (Canada) und Nellis (USA), to take part in exercises like Maple Flag and Red Flag. This 7 MiG-29 are in the USA right now at Nellis AFB.
The MiG-29 are still in use with the JG-73 in Laage at least until 2004.
If they will be sold to Poland they won't be used for spare parts because the are already NATO-compatibel. Poland needs fighter like that as only 12 of their MiG-29 are NATO-compatibel and to acquire the fighter this cheap is a great chance for Poland. It would make no sense to use them as spare parts only. There are also plans to modernize them. Here is a link where you can already see what colour scheme they will get and what number: http://www.astercity.net/~karol1/niemmigi.html
Today there are 23 MiG-29 with the JG-73, 19 single-seater 29+01 - 2912, 2914 - 29+21) and 4 two-seater (29+22 - 29+25).
The 29+09 was lost in a crash in June 1996.

@Prebennorholm: The forces of the GDR never had MiG-27.
The following type of aircraft were "taken over" by the Bundeswehr:
MiG-21, MiG-23, L-39, Tu-154, IL-62, L-410, AN-26, Mi-2, Mi-8, Mi-9, Mi-14, Mi-24 and SU-22
Some MiG-23 and SU-22 were flown for some years in Manching for tests. Some aircraft were given to the US Forces. By the way: A MiG-29 (29+06) was also brought to the USA for test for nearly two years, 1991-1992).
Some aircraft were sold or given away. Many L-39 and Mi-24 werde delivered to countries in Eastern Europe.
Beside the MiG-29 the Mi-8, L-410 and two Tu-154 and some other were operated by the Bundeswehr for some years. But now only the MiG-29 is in use.
The rest was scrapped or sold to museums or private owner. I never heard about an aircraft that has been brought to Denmark.
For example most SU-22 and MiG-23 were scrapped at Laage. That the metal of the broken aircraft has been sold to other countries, maybe.
@NoUFO: Yes, the Eurofighter will replace the MiG-29, but at least for some months they will operate alongside at Laage.
