I've not done this route, but I've toured a lot in Germany. The simple answer is, get the book "Radfernweg Berlin-Kopenhagen" published by Esterbauer. Don't worry if you don't speak German, as the maps are superb, and there will be detailed and extensive listings of all the Uebernachtungsmoeglichkeiten. Sorry, I couldn't resist one of those German compound substantives - it means, "places to stay the night". Hills are marked on the map as either steep or very steep, and there'll probably be an elevation profile for the complete route - ie not too detailed on a mile-by-mile basis, but you'll get a general impression of where the climbs are - if any. The book will also show the "Sehenswuerdigkeiten", ie places worth a visit, both on and (not too far) off the route. But the descriptions will be in German.
I must have about ten of the Esterbauer guides - they're really excellent. If you have three days to spare before the start of your ride, you might consider doing the Berlin Wall cycle path, especially if you're interested in the history of the Cold War. There's an Esterbauer guide for that too.
