Helsingør Municipality (a variant English name: Elsinore Municipality; Danish: Helsingør Kommune), is a municipality in the Capital Region 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 61,538 (1 April 2014). Its mayor as of 1 January 2014 is Benedikte Kiær, a member of the Conservative 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, Kvistgård, 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).
