Does somebody know how I can use all the important characters like {}, \ etc. with a German Mac Keyboard?

Does somebody know how I can use all the important characters like {}, \ etc. with a German Mac Keyboard? Do I have to change my settings? I can use them if I copy paste them from somewhere else. My Keyboard Shortcuts do also work on other places (in here for example). But if I try to use them within the Console, the result is strange spaces or (arg: 7), not the characters that I intended.

You can find German keyboard guides online such as this one, that show all the different modes of the keyboard. For example, the braces {} are option-8 and option-9.
