cabaret or travestie or Kabaret

We are going to be in Berlin early April and are hesitating about how to spend evenings. Never really understood the difference guide books make between Kabaret and Cabaret? Anything to advise? Further I read here and there that they have "fantastic" travestie shows. Is this true ? Where? All other info also welcome of course

Had a short view into the 'Duden' and it tells me that there's no difference between Kabarett and Cabaret. Do you have an example? For further infos about Berlin nightlife have a look at

Kabarett is german for Cabaret. I went to a cabaret/travestie show in Berlin and it was quite entertaining, except that it was all in german so if you don't speak the language make sure you check to see if it's in english or if it's mostly singing, etc. My german is pretty good, but they told a lot of jokes during the show and those were harder to understand. You'll see signs and pamphlets all over the city advertising the various shows or you can ask at your hotel/hostel/tourist information center.

One of the best travestie shows in Germany is the Chez Nous in Berlin, close to Kurfuersten Damm and KaDeWe.
