Tips for cycle trip Amsterdam to Copenhagen
I'm planing a cycling trip from Amsterdam to Copenhagen in early July. Having never cycled in this part of Europe,
I have yet to chose a route between the two cities. I'm looking for a route that is scenic but not too arduous and lengthly. I've set aside a week to complete the trip between the two cities.
Any suggestions/tips/advice are most welcome. I leave for Amsterdam on the 28th of June.

There is the North Sea Route, Eurovelo 1. You can use it for most of that trip.Have a look here:
and on Wikipedia
I intend to do the same, starting from Breda. I follow a long-distance route in Holland, called the NAP-route and later the north sea cycle route and a local route in denmark. From Amsterdam, the LF1 North sea route is better indeed, and it's a very nice one. You can also use:
it's in dutch, but if you experiment, you'll find your way. You can also indicate if you want to follow an existing (mapped) route or not, if not, the planner chooses the shortest way for you, looking for quiet roads.
for holland the following is even more detailled:
and you'll find lots of links if you google cycle routes with the name of the country. Denmark has a lot of local routes too.
I don't know your daily distances, but a week may be a bit tight. But you can take a train easily if you want to.
I'm leaving the 30th of June for a cycling trip along the North Sea Route, from Conflans Sainte Honorine (my hometown in France, near Paris) to Oslo. I am planning to arrive in Oslo between the 23th and the 28th of July, depending on my shape, the weather, etc.
My route : Paris / Dunkerque / Coast of Belgium - Netherlands - Germany / Coast of Denmark / Copenhague / Helsingor / Helsinborg / Goteborg / Oslo.

Maybe we shall meet we on the road, or can be exchanged our impressions !

Me and my wife are planning to go from Amsterdam to Copenhague in August 2014. We also would like to visit Berlin but maybe do so on train after arriving to Copenhague. We are looking for an scenic route that would have places to rest (ideally couchsurf or WarmShowers host) and certainly not too rough.
We are also glad to hear from your suggestions.
