I made a table with one cell as p{5.5cm} paragraph.

Now to not take that much space I decreased the font size to scriptsize, but the table does not shrink vertically as expected I think because of the lineskip parameter. how can I adjust the lineskip in the cell "Berechnung"?

\usepackage{geometry}         % See geometry.pdf to learn the layout options. There are lots.
\geometry{a4paper}            % ... or a4paper or a5paper or ...

    You should add a \par before your \end{scriptsize}. Or use simply \scriptsize instead of your begin/end pair. – Ulrike Fischer Jan 30 '17 at 16:04

I would like to suggest you use a tabularx environment, with width set to \textwidth, instead of using a tabular environment nested inside a minipage environment whose width is set to \textwidth.

To simplify inputting the tabular material, I suggest you automatically set everything in the final column in script size. (This may be overridden on a case by case basis by issuing \normalsize directives.) A beneficial side-effect of this setup is that line spacing will also decrease as you choose a smaller font size.
