i got a CAML-Query, which (essentially) pulls the IDs from a lookup field. Then i got another one, which querys the target of the lookup to get the date from that list.

So is there a possibility to design the CAML-Query in a way, that i get the referenced (lookedup) target list with one query instead of two?

You can join lists together like you can tables with CAML. Please refer to the MSDN link.
