Hi,
on my email providers server I want to filter all various newsletters to be moved to a folder named "Newsletter", to only have personal emails in the Inbox. This works fine so far when I set up appropriate filters on the providers server.
In a second step in Thunderbird I want to filter these newsletters according there origin to be moved from this "Newsletter" folder to separate local folders in Thunderbird.
How can I do this?

You can do that but would have to set up the filter(s) to be triggered manually. Thunderbird's filters only run automatically on messages newly arrived to the Inbox folder. http://kb.mozillazine.org/Filters_%28Thunderbird%29
