I could find it on the web. Is there a default vertical Spacing of the Figure/Table-Enviroment between the text and the picture/tabular in pt? I'm looking for the red marked space in the following picture:

    you haven't shown any code so i am guessing that is a [h] float rather than [b] so \intextsep which is set by your document class \the\intextsep will print the value, for debugging Mar 21, 2020 at 18:04

I think that the following list gives you what you want.

\floatsep        space between floats (default 12pt)
\textfloatsep    space between a top (bottom) float and suceeding (preceeding) text (default 20pt)  
\intextsep       space above/below an [h] float (default 12pt)
\dblfloatsep     like \floatsep for double column floats (default 12pt)
\dbltextfloatsep like \textfloatsep for double column floats (default 20pt)

You can check any of these for your particular document by \the\...sep which will print the value in your printed output.

The textfloatsep is \the\textfloatsep.
