If you look at this picture

you can see, that LyX generated the pagenumber where I cited book [2].

How can I surpress that behaviour?

Please provide a minimal working example (MWE) so we can see which packages you are using etc. One cause may be that hyperef is loaded with the backref option. – Andrew Swann Nov 8 '12 at 19:29
@AndrewSwann Your answer guided me towards the correct direction, thanks! I figured out the solution and posted it as an answer. Feel free to edit if necessary. – Aufwind Nov 8 '12 at 20:35

I just had to deactivate backreferences in

-> Document settings
   -> PDF-Settings
      -> Hyperlinks
         -> Backreferences
            Select "Off" in Drop-Down-Menu

I don't know the exact english words for every single entry above. See screenshot for a possible better clarification.

Glad my suggestion helped. Your translations look good, but I don't have LyX installed on my system, so may be someone who does can check them. – Andrew Swann Nov 9 '12 at 12:09
