Ängelholm Municipality (Ängelholms kommun) is a municipality in Skåne County in southern Sweden. Its seat is located in the city Ängelholm.

In 1971 the City of Ängelholm was amalgamated with the rural municipalities Ausås, Barkåkra, Hjärnarp and Munka-Ljungby, thus creating a municipality of unitary type. In 1974 a parish from the dissolved municipality Östra Ljungby was added.

Ängelholm was until recently the home of a major airforce base. The base is now closed down and the premises taken over by the supercar manufacturer Koenigsegg.

A notable landmark is the UFO memorial at Ängelholm. It is a model of a flying saucer on a site, situated on a site, where on May 18th, 1946 a UFO allegedly landed.
