Well, chances are generally much higher to see Northern Lights in Alaska than they are in Northern Germany, due to the fact that the magnetic north pole is closer to Alaska (even though the latitude might be similar)

However, during the bright summer months, chances are not particularly high and in addition to that we have just passed the solar minimum so solar activity is still very low.
