Error 001162: Invalid xml file

I am trying to import a xml file into my geodatabase. The xml file is not mine, it's from the Deutsche Bahn and I need it for completing a map regarding transportation and infrastructure in Germany. However, when I try to import the file into the geodatabase I created just for this very file, I get the following error 001162: Invalid xml file.
The ArcGis Help could not really help me, has someone encountered a similiar problem and solved it? I already tried renaming the data since I thought that maybe it could have something to do with the filename and invalid numbers etc. that were used in the filename, but that didn't seem to have been the case.

Thank you very much,
