I can't reproduce.

Meta-^ works fine for me (with an English keyboard layout)

Note that in Aquamacs, Meta-^ does NOT correspond to Command-^, unless  
you change the configuration from what is pre-set.

M-^ is Option-^.

I didn't think that ^ was a dead key, unless you use Option-i for that.

Now, if I remember correctly, Emacs (NS) has a bug that will prevent  
dead keys from being recognized in some cases.  Maybe that's what this  

Are you actually pressing  ^ (does a German keyboard still have a key  
for that), or Option-i plus space?
