Borlänge Municipality (Borlänge kommun) is a municipality in Dalarna County in central Sweden, with an area of 586.4 km². The municipality has a population of 47,640 (2007). The municipal seat is Borlänge.

The present municipality was created in 1971 when the City of Borlänge (itself instituted as a city in 1944) was reunited with the rural municipality of Stora Tuna, from which it had been detached in 1898.



Chairman of the Municipal Executive Committee (kommunstyrelsen) is Nils Persson, from the Swedish Social Democratic Party. Opposition leader is Ulla Olsson, from the Moderate Party. As in most of Dalarna, the Social Democrats hold a strong position. As a result of the Swedish municipal elections, 2006 the Social Democrats currently hold 28 of 61 mandates, a decrease of three mandates which lost them the absolute majority, though they remain the largest party in Borlänge. The Moderate Party, the second largest party, holds 11 mandates.
