Lidingö Municipality is a municipality east of Stockholm in Stockholm County in east central Sweden. Its seat is located on the island of Lidingö and 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 Fjäderholmarna islands within the Stockholm archipelago.
The rural municipality was made a market town in 1910, a city in 1926 and a unitary municipality in 1971. The municipality always refers to itself as Lidingö stad, the City of Lidingö. This was a decision taken by the municipal assembly in 1992.
