If I load the listing package to set nice code and change the font size (like suggested there: Shrinking monospace style for listings package), I lose the syntax highlighting, because the font does not get bold anymore.

\usepackage{listings}
\lstset{
  language={[Sharp]C},
  basicstyle=\ttfamily\tiny
}

\begin{lstlisting}
  int a = 5;
  //int should be bold, it's not.
  //commenting out basicstyle makes it bold, but to big
\end{lstlisting}

Is there some way to change the font size of listings without losing code highlighting?

I just found the answer myself by trial-and-error:

basicstyle=\tiny

So you don't have to overwrite the font family, contrary to what the answer in the linked question suggested.

The standard monospaced font (Computer Modern Typewriter) has no bold variant. If you load \usepackage{lmodern}, then you'll get boldface also with \ttfamily. –  egreg Mar 29 '13 at 22:13
