Sequel to "Das Wirtshaus im Spessart" ("The Spessart Inn"): As a punishment, the gang of robbers from the previous film is walled into the inn’s basement. More than 100 years later, the gang resurfaces when a highway is built at the same place. The former criminals and current ghosts vow to do a good deed to atone for their crimes. They accommodate themselves in the nearby castle of the destitute countess Charlotte, a descendant of countess Franziska whose life the robbers had once made miserable. In the attempt to help Charlotte, the ghosts cause a big mess. – In 1967, the film was followed by another sequel, "Herrliche Zeiten im Spessart" ("Glorious Times in the Spessart Inn").
