There are many overnight German trains running , outside summer months you will have a good chance of finding a place for a good sleep in the train.
Don't forget the 7 pm rule, if your overnight train departs after 7 pm, you ONLY have to use the FOLLOWING day of your pass.
Many trains run to Basle from Germany ! German trains are comfortable, especially the ICE, but regarding punctuality, they are nothing like Swiss trains !
