I define a custom footline template like that:

    \scriptsize{Seite \insertframenumber}

How can I also define a background color for the whole footline? I want the footline to be light grey...

You can use a beamercolorbox:



    \scriptsize{Seite \insertframenumber}



enter image description here

The first line (\PassOptionsToPackage) was used only to make the example compilable for everyone by replacing the actual images with black rectangles; do not use that line in your actual code. I also set the images height to a sensible value for the example.
