This year has, in many ways, been a surprise that no one could prepare for. Nothing is as it used to be, and new standards has been set up to keep the Danish restaurant industry above waters. However, the crisis has not only brought misfortune with it.
For many Danes, the corona crisis has also meant that they have been reminded of how much they care about all the things, they suddenly had to be without: togetherness with other people.
Fortunately, there will soon be another excuse to gather in small groups with those you love, when Torvehallerne celebrates Bastille Day today, 14 July.

Therefore, Bastille Day this year is packed into a picnic basket that you can take with you.
