I have this local map that'd I'm trying to add a grid with decimal points. The internal grid won't show, also when I add the zebra frame the white parts only appear in the corners (as tiny squares). I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.

    my guess is, that the CRS is in degrees and not in meters, therefore an interval of 100 is too much

In your example you are using 100 degrees in X and Y. I can see that from the projection you are using (EPSG 4326). Guessing you want to present a grid in km, you need i) to find out a CRS suitable for it like an UTM projection with meters, then use map units with the interval you want.
