Taking a tandem by train to denmark ?

My wife and I have had a couple of 500 mile trips round Holland, taking the P and O ferry from Hull to Zeebugge and then back from Rotterdam. We thought we'd stretch our legs a bit further this summer and take the train to Denmark. Is this possible with a tandem ? When last in Amsterdam we enquired about Dutch trains which seem able to accommodate tandems on some trains. What about the German trains ? Does anyone have experience of this ? And if not, any other recommendations ? Happy to swop our schedules for our two Dutch trips in 2014 and 2016 (or come to that the Outer Hebrides in 2015 and the Orkney Isles last year), if required..?

I've never had a problem taking bikes on trains, until I got a tandem.

I bought it a couple of weeks ago and needed three trains to get it home. Or so I thought. I got kicked off one train and denied two others, it took all day and some diplomacy to get it home at all, and the message was clear - they don't like tandem on the trains.
