In pcmanfm and Thunar you can add bookmarks of folders to the left bar.

Are they stored somewhere in the filesystem as symlinks?

I´d like to use the bookmarks from other applications (terminal etc.), too.

No, (at least in pcmanfm) they are not stored as symlinks; they are stored in .gtk-bookmarks, a plain text file, like so:

file:///home/jason/Music Music
file:///home/jason/Videos Videos

I have both PCManFM and Thunar installed. The first because my OS is Lubuntu 12.10. Thunar was installed recently. As you pointed out .gtk-bookmarks stores the information bookmarked by PCManFM and it is read and used by Thunar as well. –  user15760 Apr 17 '13 at 1:49
