In tourism mediators have the power to influence the tourist perception. Therefore, this study intends to analyze the presentation of the dissonant German colonial heritage in Namibia by guidebooks and tour guides. While guidebooks interpret the colonial past more dissonant, tour guide produce a consumable “colonial heritage light”. Even black tour guides focus on the German perspective including settlement and development of the former colony and disregard the dissonant elements like the Herero-war. However, the survey of German tourists shows the willingness to deal with the dissonant parts of history.
