is it possible to have more details (more citynames), without that i zoom in? In areas with few citys is the detail grade of the map to much down.

No, that is not possible. Most maps are generated by producing image files for a given zoom level following fixed rules. You might find some other style (https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Using_OpenStreetMap#Ready-made_online_maps) that produces more details for your desired zoom level.

One way that you can sort-of achieve this is by zooming the browser out (usually control mouse wheel down, in a bit of website that is not map) and then zoom the map in.

The text will be smaller, but it will show more detail.
