According to various tutorials that I found on the Internet, this problem only

Furthermore, it should even be possible to forward to the startpage in the
database.(I hope that the site exists in the database)
If this is not possible, I hope that the possibility exists to forward to the
search page of Wikipedia.
I know no other way to access wikipedia than through the Startpage. But it is a
case please tell me.
I think the problem is that you don't have the namespaces configured
correctly. By default, there's an interwiki of 'wikipedia' pointing to
English wikipedia. As the German wikipedia main page is
Wikipedia:Hauptseite, you get that odd redirect.
Remove the wikipedia entry from the interwiki table. You should now be
able to browse to the pages without getting redirected to English
wikipedia. If you didn't have $wgMetaNamespace set to 'Wikipedia', set
it so that the pages are found (I think that mwdumper will have
correctly put Wikipedia:Hauptseite at Project:Hauptseite, other tools
would have placed Wikipedia:Hauptseite at the main namespace).
