Non-ASCII symbols (e.g. '£', 'ü', 'ä' etc.) in password are not
supported in plain-text Basic Authentication. For details check this
mailing list thread:

In order to use special characters in passwords you should consider
advanced authentication methods that do not store and transfer
plain-text passwords over HTTP. As your network is based on Active
Directory the solution would be to setup Single Sign-On / Integrated
Windows AD authentication via Kerberos and/or NTLM.

You may want to try VisualSVN Server Enterprise Edition that perfectly
integrates in Active Directory and provides Single Sign-On out of the
box without any additional configuration.

Integrated Windows Authentication:

Thank you.
