Hummm. My Baltic Pilot book is on the boat, so I have forgotten its title. However, there don't seem to be too many of them published. So try amazon with some key words. We found standard tourist books suitable for explaining the local delights. If you join the Cruising Association, they have a very active Baltic section with lots of good advice.
The Dutch/German North Sea coast is great if you have shallow draft, but a bit frantic if you are plotting an inland path with a fin keel. Going round the outside is a bit short of harbours, but there are just enough. Depending on wind direction, its often beneficial to overnight in Helgoland when bridging Borkum to Cuxhaven. The Kiel (Nord-Ostsee) canal is a doddle, but expect to wait at the two locks for a crowd to gather. They claim to have "mechanical" problems (I think with the right thumb) when letting less than a lock-full of yachts through.
The Baltic is very pleasant sailing, again if you have shallow draft. Its a bit of a challenge with a deep keel in places, as it is both shallow and full of "unmarked obstacles". They say everyone runs aground there, so don't be surprised if you do. Enjoy the trip.

Hi Julchen, there’s a nice film which may be useful for you. It’s called “From Friesland To Djursland” and describes a sailing trip from the Ijsselmeer to Jutland. Besides nautical informations it gives also some informations about cities and places of interests. The film is on offer at ebay.
Have a nice trip!

Hi,

We have been sailing there 4 times, and a good cruising gide is the Imray one. "Cruising guide Germany and Denmark"
Also the Dutch guide (you are Dutch I supose?) The Giude to the Oostzee (ANWB) is good, but has less detail because of the huge coverage. I would go straight through the German Bight to Cuxhaven. After you crossed the Kielerkanal you have a lot of options! All beautifull! (Aeroskobing/Sonderborg/Vejro/Vordingborg/.../and then Copenhagen would be a good trip. Contact me if you want some more information.

Regards,
Adger
