Night Train from Copenhagen

Has anyone traveled by train from Copenhagen to the Rhine River area in Germany. We are thinking of taking the night train to Cologne and Koblenz? Is there a night train every day? Are there places we would have to change trains? Is it reasonable to think we might be able to sleep on the train, comfortable seats, etc.

I have taken the night train from Copenhagen to Munich. It was a long ride - I want to say 10 hours - and we had to change in Hamburg.

We were being cheap and did not get a sleeper. If you take the night train, I encourage you to splash out for a sleeper. It was crowded and I ended up spending a portion of the night stretched out on the floor, with people stepping over me, because I couldn't get comfy sitting up. :-)

Googling the trip to Koblenz turned up the following: - looks like 13 hours, and you change in Köln right at the end. Looks super do-able. You leave Copenhagen just before 7:00pm and get into Koblenz just before 8:00am!

I truly appreciate your responses and will be taking a look at the sites you recommended. This sounds doable and hopefully we will find the sleeper car within our budget. Thank you.
