Let’s start with the easiest one.
Tschüss.

This is the most commonly used phrase to say "bye" in German.
If you say "bye" at night, there is a different phrase you should use.
Gute Nacht.
[slowly] Gute Nacht.
This means "Good night" in German.
At night, when parting or saying goodbye, you would use the phrase gute nacht. Gute means "good," and Nacht means "night."
If you know that you are going to see the person again, here's a phrase for you.
Auf Wiedersehen.

This means "See you later" in German.
The first word, auf, means "upon," and the next word, wiedershen, means "again see."
