Vinderup Municipality is a former municipality (Danish, kommune) in Region Midtjylland on the Jutland peninsula in west Denmark. The former Vinderup municipality covered an area of 224 km2, and had a total population of 8,035 (2005). Its last mayor was Holger Hedegaard, a member of the Venstre (Liberal Party) political party. The main town of the municipality was the railway town of Vinderup.

The municipality was created in 1970 due to a kommunalreform ("Municipality Reform") that combined a number of existing parishes:

  • Ejsing Parish
  • Handbjerg Parish
  • Ryde Parish
  • Sahl Parish
  • Sevel Parish
  • Trandum Parish
  • Vinderup Parish.

On January 1, 2007 Vinderup municipality ceased to exist due to Kommunalreformen ("The Municipality Reform" of 2007). It was merged with Holstebro and Ulfborg-Vemb municipalities to form an enlarged Holstebro municipality.
