Nyborg municipality is a municipality (Danish, kommune) in Region of Southern Denmark on the east coast of the island of Funen in central Denmark. The municipality, including the island of Sprogø, covers an area of 278 km², and has a total population of 31,607 (2008). Its mayor is Jørn Terndrup, a member of the Venstre (Liberal Party) political party. The main town and the site of its municipal council is the city of Nyborg.

The island of Sprogø lies in the Great Belt ca. 8.5 kilometers from the shores of the town of Nyborg. The Great Belt Bridge connects the municipality to the island, and then it continues to the island of Zealand at the town of Korsør.

Holckenhavn Fjord cuts into the municipality on its eastern shore north of the town of Holckenhavn. A road (Svendborgvej) connects the municipality across the fjord.

On January 1, 2007 Nyborg municipality was, as the result of Kommunalreformen ("The Municipal Reform" of 2007), merged with Ørbæk and Ullerslev municipalities to form a new Nyborg municipality.
