Until January 1, 2007 Tommerup municipality was a municipality (Danish, kommune) in the former Funen County in central Denmark. The municipality covered an area of 74 km², and had a total population of 7,865 (2006). Its last mayor was Finn Brunse, a member of the Social Democrats (Socialdemokraterne) political party.

The municipality's main city and the site of its municipal council was Tommerup.

The municipality was created in 1970 due to a kommunalreform ("Municipality Reform") that combined the following parishes:

  • Broholm Parish
  • Brylle Parish
  • Tommerup Parish
  • Verninge Parish

Tommerup municipality ceased to exist as the result of Kommunalreformen ("The Municipality Reform" of 2007). It was merged with Haarby, Glamsbjerg, Assens, Aarup and Vissenbjerg municipality to form a new Assens municipality. This created a municipality with an area of 513 km² and a total population of 41,201 (2005). The new municipality belongs to Region of Southern Denmark.

On the area of Tommerup municipality there is the Tommerup transmitter, whose guyed mast is the tallest construction of Denmark (excluding Greenland).[citation needed]
