A century ago shipping company Royal Dutch Lloyd (KHL) opened its first building along the Oostelijke Handelskade, its Coffee House. Together with staff quarters, an office building, a quarantine building, and an emigrant hotel, the coffee house had its role in facilitating the transport of mainly Eastern European emigrants to South-America. In 1935, Royal Dutch Lloyd went bankrupt.
With a festival of music, guided tours, lectures and exhibitions, the buildings that formed the Lloyd-complex celebrate the era of the Royal Dutch Lloyd in the Eastern Docklands. The programme is part of Amsterdam Heritage Days.
