OK, thanks to the suggestion for MultiKey, but I myde my way through the
jungle myself and solved this the generic way: I have added to the file

    key <AD11> {        [ udiaeresis,   Udiaeresis      ],
                        [     aring,    Aring           ]       };

and I can now access å and Å by pressing AltGR+ü and AltGR+Shift+ü,
