Ok, that's great, but you didn't respond to the suggestion of using COPY
INTO instead of INSERT.

But I have no clue where to begin with determining the bottleneck (it
even may be a normal performance for all I know: I have no experience
with converting such (large) database).

Any suggestions?

Respond to the first suggestion?

Another suggestion:
How many indexes and constraints are on the new table?
Drop all of them and recreate them once the table is filled. Of course that only works if you know your data will be ok (which is normal for imports of already conforming data like database dumps of existing tables). This will give major performance improvements, if you have indexes and such on the new table.
