I now think it's a grasshopper... But haven't come any further with its ID.

It's no cricket (the typical pincers at the rear is missing). I'd say a leaf hopper or as alice said a grasshopper.

Thank you so much Alice! That sets me at least on the right track in trying to ID this little creature...
