Helsingør Kommune (variant English name: Helsingør / Elsinore municipality), is a municipality (Danish, kommune) in Region Hovedstaden on the northeast coast of the island of Zealand (Sjælland) in eastern Denmark. The municipality covers an area of 122 km², and has a total population of 60,844 (2008). Its mayor as of 2010 is Johannes Hecht-Nielsen, a member of the Liberal Party (Venstre) political party.

The main town and the site of its municipal council is the town of Helsingør (also referred to in English as "Elsinore"). Other towns include Ålsgårde, Espergærde, Hellebæk, Hornbæk, Horneby, Snekkersten, and Stenstrup.

To the east is the Øresund, the strait which separates Zealand from Sweden. To the north is the Kattegat.

Ferry service connects the municipality at the town of Helsingør east over the Øresund to the town of Helsingborg, Sweden. The European routes E47 and E55 traverse the two cities.

Helsingør municipality was not merged with other municipalities due to the nationwide Kommunalreformen ("The Municipality Reform" of 2007).
