Danderyd Municipality (Danderyds kommun) is a municipality just north of Stockholm in Stockholm County in east central Sweden. It is one of the smallest municipalities of Sweden, but the most affluent. Its seat is located in Djursholm.

The "old" rural municipality Danderyd was split up during the early 20th century, when Djursholm and Stocksund broke away in 1901 and 1910 respectively. Since 1971 Danderyd Municipality is reunified in approximately the old boundaries.

The current chairman (2011) of the municipal executive committee (kommunstyrelsen) is Björn Hamilton, of the Moderate Party.

The four districts making up Danderyd are: Danderyd, Djursholm, Stocksund within Stockholm urban area and Enebyberg.

Jonas Gustavsson, the NHL player, Jakob Lindberg, the lutenist, and Christian Lindberg, the trombone soloist, were born here.

The population in Danderyd Municipality is among the most affluent in the country, having the highest average taxed income per capita. One of the reasons for this is the high price on real estate, which in turn is partially due to a restrictive policy on new developments by the municipality council.

The high income of the population has enabled the municipality to maintain a relatively low rate of taxation, but a government redistribution scheme intended to transfer money from municipalities with a better than average economic situation is one factor that has forced the local government to raise the municipal income tax somewhat in the last few years.
