I am using tocloft to create an List of Figures. Now I would like to get rid of title and the list of figure should begin right at the top after the chapter title. I know the following is not a minimal example, but it should be understandable.

In the preamble I have this:

\renewcommand{\cftfigpresnum}{Abb. }
\settowidth{\cftfignumwidth}{Abb. 10\quad}
\renewcommand{\cftfigdotsep}{\cftnodots}%punkte im abb. verzeichnis.

And between begin and end


% in between there are many figures... 


It should begin here.

Instead of calling \listoffigures, use

\@starttoc{lof}% Print List of Figures

directly, or remove the header construction suggested by tocloft:

\listoffigures% Print List of Figures

The latter (perhaps preferred) solution stems from the definition if \listoffigures in tocloft.sty (note the \@cftmakeloftitle that is not needed, since you're providing your own):

    \parindent\z@ \parskip\cftparskip
