Did any German units cross over the Volga?

Hi Everyone

I was just doing some google earth stuff over Volgograd and I just wondered

Did any German units do any type of scouting or cross over the river anywhere around Stalingrad? north or south of the city?

I have not been able to find anything but thought they might have done something like that when they arrived or soon thereafter

thanks much!

IIRC had units just looking over the river with Arty covering the crossings.
