Lidingö Municipality (Lidingö kommun semi-officially named as Lidingö stad) is a municipality just east of Stockholm in Stockholm County in east central Sweden. Its seat is located in the city of Lidingö. The municipality is a part of Metropolitan Stockholm.

It is chiefly located on the island Lidingö, but also incorporates a few smaller islands in the surroundings, most notably the islets Fjäderholmarna within the Stockholm archipelago.

Being an island municipality it has not been amalgamated with any other entities. The small island of Tranholmen has, however, been transferred to Danderyd Municipality. The rural municipality was made a market town (köping) in 1910, a city in 1926 and a unitary municipality in 1971.

The municipality always refer to itself as Lidingö stad ("City of Lidingö"). This was a decision taken by the municipal assembly (kommunfullmäktige) 1992.



The island Lidingö is connected to the city of Stockholm by the two bridges of Lidingöbron. One is for cars and one for the Lidingöbanan suburban tramway and pedestrians. The bridges lead directly to Ropsten, a station of the Stockholm Metro.

Lidingö is for statistical purposes divided into three localities: Lidingö, Brevik and Sticklinge udde. Because of the strait Lilla Värtan separating the island Lidingö from central Stockholm Lidingö statistically is not counted as a part of the Stockholm urban area.
