Wasserstraße is just to the right of the river on the left (it's a stub 
- I have the street-name sign but haven't mapped the street itself yet). 
  Königstraße is in the top right.  Both are highway=unclassified.

I'm also using 3639 and having just freshly downloaded the data, I still 
see the problem.
