Is there a way to show grid without data? 
So, to see only columns?

Hi Hrvoje, 

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 

Yes, we can bound the empty data source to the Grid and showing the Grid columns without data by passing the empty list like as follows, 
Code example
<ej:Grid ID="Grid1"    AllowPaging="True"   runat="server"> 
                <ej:Column Field="OrderID" HeaderText="Order ID" IsPrimaryKey="true"    TextAlign="Right" Width="90" /> 
                <ej:Column Field="CustomerID" HeaderText="Customer ID"   Width="100"  /> 
                <ej:Column Field="EmployeeID" HeaderText="Employee ID"   TextAlign="Right" Width="110"  /> 
                <ej:Column Field="Freight" HeaderText="Freight"  TextAlign="Right" Width="90" Format="{0:C}" /> 
                <ej:Column Field="OrderDate" HeaderText="Order Date" Width="100"   TextAlign="Right" Format="{0:MM/dd/yyyy}" /> 
                <ej:Column Field="ShipCity" HeaderText="Ship City" Width="100" /> 
<ToolbarSettings ShowToolbar="True" ToolbarItems="  add,edit,delete,update,cancel"> 
@code behind 
List<Orders> order = new List<Orders>(); 
        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) 
        private void BindDataSource() 
            this.Grid1.DataSource = order; //bind the empty data source 

We have also prepared a sample for your convenience which can be download from following link,
