I think that it is not a bug of emacs-w3m, but is a server side
problem.  The server does not provide a proper content type header
including the information of what coding system is used, and your
reported page also include no tags about coding systems.

You can use the command `w3m-redisplay-with-charset' to view the page
with your selected coding system.

The other solution is to add your prefered coding systems such as
`iso-8859-1' to `w3m-coding-system-priority-list'.  If you find its
good default value for German people, please send it to this mailing

Before customizing `w3m-coding-system-priority-list', it is important
to check the value of `w3m-language' that controlls a localization
behavior of emacs-w3m.  Now, it accepts only two values: the first is
nil that means no localization, and the second is "Japanese".
