The solution will resemble this (HTML tables, but you get the idea):

<xsl:template match="profile">
  <table>
    <tbody>
      <xsl:for-each select="frage">
        <tr>
          <td>
            <xsl:value-of select="."/>
          </td>
          <td>
            <xsl:value-of select="following-sibling::antwort[1]"/>
          </td>
        </tr>
      </xsl:for-each>
    </tbody>
  </table>
</xsl:template>


Or this (same thing):


<xsl:template match="profile">
  <table>
    <tbody>
      <xsl:apply-templates select="frage"/>
    </tbody>
  </table>
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="frage">
  <tr>
    <td>
      <xsl:value-of select="."/>
    </td>
    <td>
      <xsl:value-of select="following-sibling::antwort[1]"/>
    </td>
  </tr>
</xsl:template>
