Freitag has finished in the top three just twice this season, those both second-place finishes with the first at the Olympic test event in Sochi in December and the second exactly a month later in Wisla.
However, with attentions beginning to turn towards the Nordic World Ski Championships in Val di Fiemme, Freitag put down the perfect marker for gold by winning the ski flying event in Germany.
He led after the first round with a huge jump of 209m that gave him a points total of 205.8 while an effort of 206.5m gave him 204.0 and just enough for a combined winning total of 409.8.
Andreas Stjernen, third after the first round with 201.3 points, went bigger than Freitag in the second round jumping 212m for 208.2 but he was to fall 0.3 short of overthrowing the German.
However second place marks the Norwegian best ever World Cup finish having never before featured in the top three on his 41 previous starts on the tour.
And, to complete a tight top three, Gregor Schlierenzauer was just 0.5 points adrift for Stjernen as the World Cup leader finished in third place for the second successive time.
Third does edge Schlierenzauer ever closer to his second World Cup title with just six rounds left and 600 points on offer and his leader over second-place Anders Bardal, who was 16th in Oberstdorf, 538.
