Fremdingen is a small municipality of 2.120 inhabitants, situated within the lander of Bavaria in the district of Donau-Ries. Its crest shows an image of St. Leonhard, who is venerated in the Ries north from centuries in all emergencies but first of all as protector of farm animals and horses. The Crest is painted with the colours of the County of Oettingen: Gold (earth shield), red (alone) e blue (iron chain).

We resume our walk crossing the railway line. We are on the Oettinger Strasse which by turning right will take us on the 25; we cross and continue on the An der Salch, which we leave at the three-road junction, to enter the wood uphill; this stage lies mainly on agricultural land with several villages and farms; the forests, beside this one, we shall barely touch. A straight route of 1 km will take us into a village: Raustetten, then we cross some fields; we walk along the edge of woodland, still uphill, we enter the wood for a few hundred meters and we go downhill turning left and along more fields, towards Enslingen, another small village. Out of the village we walk on a straight lane 1,6 km long across the fields and we arrive at road 25 which we cross and enter the w village of Minderoffingen.
