I don't know about konsole but I would be 99% sure it handles utf8.
Does the following output foreign chars?
locale -a |
grep utf8 |
uniq -w2 |
while read LANG; do
head -2 | tail -1;
When you start vim, and enter a €, and do g8 on that char
do you get "e2 82 ac" in the status line?

The default fonts which konsole should pick up,
contain quite a few unicode chars.
How does this page display for you?
If you want loads more foreign chars for some reason
install the following: http://www.google.com/search?q=freesans.ttf
With fontconfig, all I had to do was copy that to ~/.fonts
