Night train from Munich to Berlin

Is there sleeper cars when traveling from Munich to Berlin at night. If so how do you go about reserving a sleeping area?
Thanks

Yeh, its only just a tad over 6 hours by day. Last connection of the day leaves just after 6 pm and gets to Berlin after midnight. There is a sleeper leaving at 10:15 pm getting in at 8 am, but that one takes almost 10 hours.
Go to www.bahn.com and follow the directions. You can see the prices for various sleep options, seat only, 4 or 6 person couchette, single economy or deluxe compartments. When you get to the deluxe single compartment price, you'll see you could stay in a pretty nice hotel for that amount of money and it will be a whole lot more restful than a sleeper train.

The faster daytime trains are edging out night trains, but not yet this one. The CityNightLine sleeper train on this route has all the normal options. Like most night trains, it goes slower and may make prolonged stops. If you have a pass and only need the sleeper, then you'll see the link to "Book only extra charge" after you start the ticket purchase process on DB.

Hi,

The CNL night train Munich-Berlin offers all 3 types of sleeping accomodations: sleeper (Schlafwagen), couchette (Liegewagon), and the cheapest of the three, sleeperette (Ruhesessel). I got a seat in the Ruhesessel, have used that option a couple of times, no problems, suits me fine. All 3 options require reservations. You can reserve using the DB website, the earlier the better as regards to getting the cheapest price. On the availability of night trains, in spite of some discontinued routes since beginning of 2015, lots of night routes are still in operation in Germany, such as Munich-Amsterdam, and Central Europe.

Hi,

If you have a rail Pass, reserving a sleeperette seat in 2nd class on the CNL will cost 18 Euro Munich to Berlin.
