I know that by \renewcommand{\baselinestretch}{number} it is possible to change the line distances, but it would also change the footnote distances.

How can I only change the line distances in the main text? I think there should be some changes in macros of \@footnote or some thing like this. Any idea?

do not change the value of \baselinestretch. Use package setspace instead:

\documentclass{article}                 
\usepackage[english]{babel} 
\usepackage{setspace} 
\usepackage{blindtext} 
\setstretch{1.25}
\begin{document}            

\blindtext\footnote{\blindtext}

\end{document}
