Yes I could start from command line and I have made a launchd item. After installing the stable version 2.3 I could make the necessary changes to the run script and after correcting the path in the launchd item (~/Kalender/CalendarServer-2.3/) and the permissions now the server starts up when I log in and everything is fine!
Thank you very much for your help!

Best Regards
