In my case I have an polygon layer with labels (Beschriftungen). Countries with country names. I want to have this labels as an own point layer without the polygons (countries).

Is this possible? QGIS 2.14

You can convert the polygons to centroids which will contain the same attribute table of the polygon layer, as you can see below:

Then, create labels from the newly created point layer.

You can find the above tool from Vector -> Geometry tools -> Polygon centroids.
