Nordfyn is a municipality (Danish, kommune) in Region of Southern Denmark in Denmark. It covers an area of 451 km2 (174 sq mi) and a total population of 29,651 (2009).

On 1 January 2007 Nordfyn municipality was created as the result of Kommunalreformen ("The Municipal Reform" of 2007), consisting of the former municipalities of Bogense, Otterup and Søndersø.

It was originally planned that the new entity should have continued the existing name of Bogense municipality but a local referendum preferred the name Nordfyn and this decision was approved by the Danish Interior Minister, Lars Løkke Rasmussen, in June 2006.[1]
