Creating an event "Büro" (containing the german umlaut "ü") does not get synced to a davical based server, using "Buero" instead works. Other clients (N9, ThunderBird Lightning, etc.) do not show this problem thus the davical server should be fine.

Maybe you should open an issue at https://github.com/nemomobile/buteo-sync-plugin-caldav/issues

I've actually noticed that I don't see any events of a CalDAV calendar which contains events which have umlauts. IoW: the event seems to prevent syncing of the whole calendar...

Fixed in Sailfish, Vaarainjärvi, account re-creation might be needed in some cases, if you still have issues please comment here.

With Vaarainjärvi ( the umlaut-containing events are synced properly. However, if you happen to have a messed up event on your server side already (e.g. from using previous Sailfishes), that still prevents the sync of all events of the calendar containing the messed up event.
