[R] Problem with German special characters

When using the German special characters I didn't see all characters in the correct way. Let's take the command
ff <- "Ã¤Ã¶Ã¼ÃÃÃÃ" # (for those ones who can't see this in the correct way \"a, \"Ã¶, \"Ã¼
# \ss (?), \"A, \"O and \"U in LaTeX commands
'ff' will show the output text "\344\366Ã¼Ã\304\326\334" on Rconsole. So only "Ã¼" ("\u) and "Ã" (\ss) are shown in the correct way. The other characters are coded in the "\" form.
I found out that this problem doesn't occur when exporting 'ff' to a text file with 'writeLines'. When opening this file with a text editor you can see all characters in the correct way.
What can I do to get the correct output of the special characters?
Thanks for your help in advance!
