not sure this is the fastest way but you can go to Overpass Turbo and write a query:

rel(1990598);out geom;

Then run it and when you see the results click on "data" on the top right and copy the whole data to a text file with ending .osm. In umap go to the import function and import that file into the desired layer.

This would be a one-time load. If you want to have the data always reflect the current version in OSM you need to create a linked layer. You can read on that on the OSM forum thread where I got this solution from. I assume you can read German.
