 2                     10
 2                     20
 2                     30

Something like this?  Some words of warning:
1.  I'm not sure of the need for the url.tfm_orderby, but I've kept it in because that's what you've got
2.  If using that in url parameter in your ORDER BY statement, use a cfqueryparam around it
3.  Try and avoid using startrow and maxrows when grouping your cfoutput, it'll just cause confusion.  Better to try and find some other way (i.e. don't use the group attributes, write your own logic for working it out)
4.  The method I've used for building up a string as a list then looping through just the first 2 elements, etc, isn't ideal
<cfquery name="getArtikel">
	SELECT A.art_ID, A.price, E.Extras_ID, E.Extras_Text
	FROM Extras_All E
			INNER JOIN ArtExtras AE ON AE.Extras = E.Extras_ID
			INNER JOIN Artikel A ON AE.Artikel_ID = A.Art_ID
	ORDER BY #url.tfm_orderby#, A.art_ID, E.Extras_ID
</cfquery>
 
<cfset ExtraText = "">
 
<cfoutput query="getArtikel" group="#url.tfm_orderby#">
	<cfoutput group="art_ID">
		#getArtikel.price#
		<cfoutput>
			<cfset ExtraText = ListAppend(ExtraText, getArtikel.Extras_Text)>
		</cfoutput>
		
		<cfloop index="i" from="1" to="#Min(2, ListLen(ExtraText))#">
			#ListGetAt(ExtraText, i)##
			<cfif ListLen(ExtraText) GT 1 AND i EQ 1>, </cfif>
		</cfloop>
		<cfif ListLen(ExtraText) GT 2>...</cfif>
	</cfoutput>
</cfoutput>

Hi duncancumming.
Thank you for your help.
Here is one more question that has to do with this one so that you can have more details:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web_Development/Web_Languages-Standards/Cold_Fusion_Markup_Language/Q_23855306.html

The first mistake is that i have FROM artikel a.It must appending your code FROM Extras_ALL.
Now i try to use your code in this example page but i have error
Column A.Art_ID is invalid in theselect list because it is noy contained in either an aggregate function or the group by close.
