Hello Stephan. This error can be fixed by trying the following methods.

1. Hard Reboot your device (Hold Home & Power for 10 seconds).

2. Try to activate your iPhone on another WiFi Network.

3. If your iPhone is Not unlocked - Use the official sim card.

4. Activate your iPhone via iTunes (connect your phone and open iTunes).

5. Try with a custom DNS server.

If still you can't fix the "Your iPhone could not be activated because the activation server cannot be reached" error - reply here.
