I have the following circuit connecting two stm32F4 via the SN65HVDA195-Q1 LIN-transciever.

schematic

simulate this circuit – Schematic created using CircuitLab

In the stm32F4 UART-library I found the following LIN implementation:

===============================================================================
                                LIN mode functions
 ===============================================================================  

  This subsection provides a set of functions allowing to manage the USART LIN 
  Mode communication.

  In LIN mode, 8-bit data format with 1 stop bit is required in accordance with 
  the LIN standard.

  Only this LIN Feature is supported by the USART IP:
    - LIN Master Synchronous Break send capability and LIN slave break detection
      capability :  13-bit break generation and 10/11 bit break detection


  USART LIN Master transmitter communication is possible through the following procedure:
     1. Program the Baud rate, Word length = 8bits, Stop bits = 1bit, Parity, 
        Mode transmitter or Mode receiver and hardware flow control values using 
        the USART_Init() function.
     2. Enable the USART using the USART_Cmd() function.
     3. Enable the LIN mode using the USART_LINCmd() function.
     4. Send the break character using USART_SendBreak() function.

  USART LIN Master receiver communication is possible through the following procedure:
     1. Program the Baud rate, Word length = 8bits, Stop bits = 1bit, Parity, 
        Mode transmitter or Mode receiver and hardware flow control values using 
        the USART_Init() function.
     2. Enable the USART using the USART_Cmd() function.
     3. Configures the break detection length using the USART_LINBreakDetectLengthConfig()
        function.
     4. Enable the LIN mode using the USART_LINCmd() function.


@note In LIN mode, the following bits must be kept cleared:
        - CLKEN in the USART_CR2 register,
        - STOP[1:0], SCEN, HDSEL and IREN in the USART_CR3 register.

So far I did not find a small example like "Hello World" of how to use this LIN implementation. In the end I would like to transfer sensor values but an example transmission of some hardcoded nubers should help me.

Edit: To make it more concrete an initialization of the masters and the slaves as well as the sending of the int number "1337" would solve my problem.

This isn't a LIN driver, only support for BREAK sending and detection. LIN requires the bus to be held low for a specified period to signal the start of a frame. This allows the master to send a BREAK and either a master or slave to detect that break so further processing can occur. You still need to handle the remainder of the LIN processing (master needs to send a PID and parse the response according to the schedule and the slave needs to watch for a PID and send the response).
