Hello Dieter,

I don't think that is the larva of any butterfly or moth. It appears to have some twenty body segments which is too many for any of the Lepidoptera.

Lots of legs with 2 pairs per body segment should make it a millipede but I certainly wouldn't go beyond that.

Thank You for Your help.
In the internet I found a page.
Almost down is a picture which looks quite similar.
Millipede is written there.

Dieter,
It is a flat-back millipede; but I can't go further than that. Probably poisionous aswell juding by the colours.
