    The two German cargo ships referred to are the "Cap Roca" and the "Cimbria".

    "Cologne building, pan down the street" - the building is the Great St Martin Church (Gross Sankt Martin).

    The first Cologne bridge seen is the Hohenzollernbrucke, then, right at the end of the clip, the Severinsbrucke.
