Vänersborg Municipality ("Vänersborgs kommun") is a municipality in Västra Götaland County in western Sweden. Its seat is located in the city of Vänersborg.

The present municipality was created during the local government reform in the early 1970s. In 1971 the "City of Vänersborg" became a municipality of unitary type and three years later it was amalgamated with three surrounding municipalities. The number of original local government entities (as of 1863) is eight.
