Skælskør[pronunciation?] is a town in Slagelse municipality on the Danish island of Zealand. The town has a population of 6,532 (1 January 2015).[1] Administratively, the town is in Region Zealand (Region Sjælland) and is home to one of Denmark's largest breweries, the Harboe Brewery.

Historically it was a harbour for traffic between Zealand and Funen, but Korsør took over when the harbour there was settled. Skælskør Fjord is difficult to navigate, and was one of the last waters in Denmark that legally required a pilot on recreational boats.
