Go - or living in Denmark, perhaps I should write "come" :-)
Denmark is very small - excluding Bornholm, it's about 200 by 240 miles or
so, so you'll have plenty of time. I can drive from my house (Just south of
Copenhagen) to the Danish - German border in Jutland in about 3 - 3½ hours,
or so (Legally).
I'd look at Copenhagen or Hamburg airport (And if you the chance / time,
have a look at Hamburg too - a lot of Danes emigrated from Hamburg, and
there's a good emigration museum).
You'll need a car, because my guess is you're going to small, tiny places in
the middle of nowhere, to visit churches and the like. Except for the area
around Copenhagen, it can be really hard to get around by bus or train.
Depending on how well your mother is, I'd consider hostels. Some of them are
really good, and you'll have access to a kitchen, so you can make your own
dinner, like Frikadeller, Flæskesteg, Medisterpølse and finker :-)
They're all over Denmark.
