Clean install Rasbian buster

Is that possible or do I have to first install Strech and and upgrade?

You're about eighteen months too early. I wouldn't expect to be testing Buster before February 2019 as there will be nothing built for it until there's an early release candidate.

Well, there are packages for buster. If I try to upgrade from stretch, a lot of packages are available for upgrading.

Best of luck with that. Make sure you backup anything important to recover when your system won't boot.

raspbian.org buster packages should be usable, but at raspberrypi.org we don't support 'testing'. If you want a clean install, you can use debootstrap and go from there.
