I'm using the api with that url:

It works well, if I don't have charcters like ä,ü,ö in the country or city name. I try to decode it with %C3%...

But it don't works. Any ideas?

IMO, this is due to geographic names database used by WU, that relies only over english translitteration/translation. For example, querying the autocomplete feature for Weißwasser/O.L. , Sachsen, Deutschland
gives no usable response
reveals the city details into usable WU terms.

So, if WU doesn't cover this query scenario, the way to get data is to use a translitterated name for the wanted city.
