Great, I got it. Thanks.

Yes, but how do I apply law of cosines, if I don't know the intermediate position?

I also thought about beginning with the y-coordinate. But I am somehow stuck at solving $v'_y=cos\alpha*v_y-sin\alpha*v_z$.

Correct me if I am wrong, but this cannot work because the second rotation (about the y axis) will change the z-coordinate. Therefore, the angle you described is not the correct one.
