Rosport (Luxembourgish: Rouspert) is the capital of the commune Rosport-Mompach. It is part of the canton of Echternach, which is part of the district of Grevenmacher.

It was a commune until 2017.

Rosport Castle, built in 1892, was the home of the Luxembourg inventor Henri Tudor. Since May 2009, the castle has been home to the Tudor Museum where there is an exhibition based on his development of the lead–acid battery.[1]
