    Guten Morgen.

    Es steht sogar im Duden, allerdings mit dem Zusatz "landschaftlich":

    Wie|der|schau|en, das: in der Fügung [auf] W. (landsch.; auf Wiedersehen!).

    They also write Wiederschauen, but as sokol says, nobody says it like this.

    In spoken language it's just (auf) Wiederschau'n, sometimes (often) even without auf.

    Yes, you're right - it is in the Duden, I never did look up the word until today.

    Really, really strange to write 'Wiederschauen' at all - it just has a 'wrong look' to me. I still would write 'Wiederschaun' even though Duden proposes another orthography. One of the strange things about German orthography I just choose to ignore. (We still have a free will, now haven't we?)
