It covers an area of 291.07 km² and has a total population of 12,641 (1 January 2018). It is connected to Funen via a bridge, Langelandsbroen.

As of 1 January 2018, Tonni Hansen is the mayor of Langeland Municipality. He is the only member of the Socialist People's Party to hold the top political post in a municipality in 2018. Previously, Lejre Municipality had a mayor, Mette Touborg, from this party, but she left her position 28 September 2016 for a new job.

The municipality was created as a result of the municipal reform of 2007, through a merger of the municipalities of Rudkøbing, Sydlangeland and Tranekær. However, the new municipality nonetheless agreed to enter into a "municipal cooperation agreement" with Svendborg Municipality.[1]
