Noticed something strange today:

drush ard @sites is working in the folder /drupal6/sites/, but not in /drupal7/sites/. When i go to a specific folder, the command runs as expected (drush ard foobar.com in /drupal7/sites/foobar/) So, Drush is working ;-), it's working in Drupal 6 but not in 7. Can someone advice me where to look? Did some googling, but i can't find a good answer.

Drush status gives

Drupal version                  :  7.26
Site URI                        :  http://foobar.com

The error with drush -d ard @sites is:

Command archive-dump needs a higher bootstrap level to run
- you will need to invoke drush from a more functional Drupal 
environment to run this command*

This seems like a permissions' issue on your server. Make sure that the user that you are running the command as, has the appropriate permissions in the Drupal 7 directory.

An easy way to fix it is change the owner of the Drupal7 dir by using something like:

chown -R username:usergroup /path/to/drupal7/dir

or if you are working in a debian based environment you can run the command with super-user-do like:

sudo drush ard
