I recently stumbled upon miniatures from Perry miniatures (Napoleon and ACW 28mm). Since there are already certain bases contained within the boxed sets I wonder if there is a particular gaming system connected.
Or any other ideas, for a good 28mm skirmishing system?

Sharpe Practice by Too Fat Lardies. Good Napoleonic skirmish rules.

What Pete said. Sharp Practice and the Perry plastics could have been made for each other. Take a look at the Victrix plastics as well as they are very compatible with the Perry stuff.

Sharp Practice also works for ACW with very little modification, in fact I have only used it for ACW so far.

There's also Song of Drums and Shakos, that is a quick and easy skirmish game, which requires just a few miniatures

The Victrix Napoleonic figures also contain a set of fairly simple rules.

28mm plastic figures are the new growth area in wargaming circles. Companies like Victrix, Perry and Wargames Factory are starting to publish and plan lots of new stuff. Wargames factory currently do Roman, Boer war and Zombies! Victrix are concentrating on expanding their Napoleonic range. The Perry's will be doing more Napoleonic (French Dragoons next) and 100 Years War Men-at-Arms and archers.

Thanks for your feedback.

I read about Sharpe Practice and Black Powder Battles. Any recommendations concerning these two skirmishing rule sets? Any Idea where to get them in Germany (As a hardcopy)?

I understood that the perry miniatures were designed to show a complete battalion (1:20 ratio) with 6 minis on a base as a company.
Does anybody now if there are any rulesets concerning this scale?

regards
