How good is it to jump on a 'trampolien'?
I would not say that this by itself would constitute the best form of exercise for health and fitness. It certainly would be better than doing nothing, because it is exercise, but because you are taking advantage of a mechanical piece of equipment and its elastic energy, you are probably doing a relatively small amount of work - in comparison with running, cycling, swimming, aerobics etc. So, while it would be of some benefit to you, I would not expect that a trampoline fitness programme by itself would be the ideal exercise programme - rather try to make it a part of a more integrated programme.
