Rosport is famous in Luxembourg because of the the mineral water carrying the same name as the village. Although "Rosport" is only sold locally in Luxembourg, you can find it in practically every restaurant. From a touristic point of view, Rosport is a nice little place located close to Echternach on the river Sauer. Thanks to a barrage, in Rosport the river is large enough to be used for aquatic sports. From a historic point of view, Rosport is known as one of the very first places with electronic street-lights.
