Id like to exchange , and ; for moving to next and previous character-search, because that fits better the lowercase is next UPPERCASE is previous schema on a German Keyboard. But I don't know how.

These are normal-mode commands; with :nnoremap, you avoid that the mapping targets are again remapped; this enables the swapping (and is generally a good practice to use). Put the following into your ~/.vimrc to make it permanent:

:nnoremap ; ,
:nnoremap , ;
