I know that it is utf-16-be as I can decode it with Python. How can I load a
utf-16-be file in emacs such that it is displayed propperly?

There are (at least) two ways:

1. Create an empty file (b) containing only

        <!-- -*- mode: Text; coding: utf-16-be; -*- -->

  and cat the original file (a) into that (cat a >> b).

2. Temporarily set:

           (setq default-buffer-file-coding-system 'utf-16-be)
           (set-default-coding-systems                   'utf-16-be)
           (prefer-coding-system                                 'utf-16-be)

   (Copy into *scratch* buffer, mark region, eval-region.)

Mit friedvollen Grüßen
