For developing with the SharePoint REST APIs using JavaScript I always use PnPjs because it's an easy way of getting data from SP.

PnPjs is a collection of fluent libraries for consuming SharePoint, Graph, and Office 365 REST APIs in a type-safe way.

My question is now can I use a NuGet library that does the same in .NET (but without the thenable promises of course)?

I'll access SharePoint lists using a console application written in C#.

I've searched for alternatives but didn't find anything that looks good. The only thing I find is to write it like code below:

using Newtonsoft.Json;  
using Newtonsoft.Json.Linq;  
namespace REST  
    class Program  
        static void Main(string[] args)  
            HttpWebRequest endpointRequest = (HttpWebRequest)HttpWebRequest.Create("Site URL/_api/web/lists/getByTitle(List Name')/items");  
            endpointRequest.Method = "GET";  
            endpointRequest.Accept = "application/json;odata=verbose";  
            NetworkCredential cred = new System.Net.NetworkCredential("username", "password", "domain");  
            endpointRequest.Credentials = cred;  
            HttpWebResponse endpointResponse = (HttpWebResponse)endpointRequest.GetResponse();  
                WebResponse webResponse = endpointRequest.GetResponse();  
                Stream webStream = webResponse.GetResponseStream();  
                StreamReader responseReader = new StreamReader(webStream);  
                string response = responseReader.ReadToEnd();  
                JObject jobj = JObject.Parse(response);  
                JArray jarr = (JArray)jobj["d"]["results"];  
                foreach (JObject j in jarr)  
                    Console.WriteLine(j["Title"]+" "+j["Body"]);  
            catch (Exception e)  
                Console.Out.WriteLine(e.Message); Console.ReadLine();

You can use pnp even with .NET.

If you want an alternative you can use CSOM, the .NET version of JSOM
