I know tell application "Finder" to open POSIX file "/folder/path/" will open a new finder window, how can I open a folder in the current finder window?

I found the answer myself:

tell application "Finder"
    set the target of the front Finder window to (POSIX file "/folder/path/")
end tell

If you also want to open a new Finder window when there are no open Finder windows (or only for example a preferences window is open), use the reopen command:

tell application "Finder"
    reopen
    set target of Finder window 1 to (POSIX file "/tmp/")
end tell
