The city of Frederiksberg is the only town in the municipality, and is therefore the site of its municipal council.

Frederiksberg is located as an enclave within the municipality of Copenhagen, the national capital. The municipality was originally situated west of Copenhagen, but after a number of smaller municipalities were merged with Copenhagen in 1901, it became surrounded by Copenhagen.

Frederiksberg was one of the three last Danish municipalities not belonging to a County—the others being Copenhagen and Bornholm. On 1 January 2007, the municipality lost its county privileges and became part of Region Hovedstaden (i.e. the Copenhagen Capital Region).

Frederiksberg municipality was not merged with other municipalities as the result of nationwide Kommunalreformen ("The Municipal Reform" of 2007).
