A captivating adventure for young and old

Anton is ten years old and an enthusiastic fan of horror stories. Actually, it can’t be scary enough for him.

But one evening during vacation it happens: his parents have just gone to the nearby village to dance and Anton is sunk in a very scary vampire story when suddenly a real vampire appears next to his tent!

Luckily, after the first shock, the little vampire turns out to be a friendly representative of his kind. His name is Rüdiger von Schlotterstein.

The two quickly become friends and Rüdiger shows Anton not only the family tomb but also his own coffin. When Anna, the little vampire’s younger sister comes to visit, the two unlike friends quickly become three.

While Anton desperately tries to convince his parents of the existence of the vampires, Rüdiger and Anna fight with the vampire hunter Geiermeier, who wants to wipe out all vampires!

How the story ends and whether everything will turn out fine in the end is what young and old vampires will find out on their own when fluttering to the Baumanns Cave in Rübeland…
