I bought my Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Yoga (4th gen) 2 week ago from China and laptop is not under warranty.
2 days ago, one of the hinges keeping the screen broke (photo). I tried to find replacement parts on the Lenovo website, but can't find the part number for the hinges.
I want to purchase hinges in Germany/Europe and replace them by myself, is it possible ?

Hi LaiKindr, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!
First, this is primarily users helping users here, moderated by volunteers like me. There is increasing Lenovo presence, but they don't patrol the entire community. They do help with some of the broader issues.
It has no warranty? Anyhoo you can buy the spare part and install it yourself. The hinges appear to be part of the LCD assembly. Go to the Lenovo support site and do a parts lookup.

Call lenovo, ask for parts look up, at least it worked many times for me in the US, don't know how Lenovo in European countries works.
At this point, no one else sells the gen 4 hinge, only Lenovo has the parts. So you are just wasting time here.
