"So we get back to the hotel and at 7:10pm we get a taxi (41 Euro) to the
airport. Trip takes only 20 minutes."

Next time take the direct train to the airport.

The Schiphol duty free area for those travelling within the EU isn't duty free.
Going price for a Braun hair dryer in the BCC chain of shops and in V&D is
about EUR 40.

I agree that Denmark is expensive. We had the good fortune to have a
guide - our daughter was studying at DTU at the time. We stayed in
Ballerup (Zleephotel - spartan but (relatively) inexpensive), drove to
Lyngby and took the bus into Copenhagen from there.

What a strange route to include Amsterdam in a trip to
Germany/Denmark/Sweden

Of course people arrive early for a twice a day ferry.. Many of them will
have come from 100s of kms away and will have left a lot of slack in their
drive so that they don't miss it. Even so, if you come from a short
distance away and can time your arrival for the last minute, many occasional
ferries have a minimum check in of 1 hour - arriving only 20 minutes before
it leaves is just asking to be left on the quay-side (though I can't find
Stena's rules about this)

Would have been interesting to know how long you queued for the Fehmarnbelt
ferry.

Because I had to be in Amsterdam on these dates, to attend a conference.

You misunderstood that. We chose a late ferry (8:15pm), to have the
whole day available for sightseeing. Then we were done with LŘbeck
earlier than expected and the weather was not that good, so we drove to
Puttgarden early, arriving at 6pm. We drove a bit around the area, but
didn't find anything terribly interesting and it was raining anyway. So
we didn't do anything special until we got on the ferry.
At 7:20pm we drove to the ferry terminal, expecting to wait a while for
the 8:15pm ferry, but were lucky to be put on the 7:45pm ferry, thereby
shortening the waiting time by half an hour.

Suppose you arrive in Amsterdam by rental car; is it worthwhile
returning the car in the city and then taking the shuttle or train? I
would probably return the car at the airport?

It only costs about EUR 3 to take a train from Schiphol to the centre of
Amsterdam. There's a train about every 15 minutes.

I would recommend the 197 bus. Very convenient.
