Lądek-Zdrój [ˈlɔndɛk ˈzdrui̯] (German: Bad Landeck) is a town in Kłodzko County, Lower Silesian Voivodeship, in south-western Poland. It is the seat of the administrative district (gmina) called Gmina Lądek-Zdrój, close to the Czech border. It lies approximately 20 kilometres (12 mi) south-east of Kłodzko, and 88 kilometres (55 mi) south of the regional capital Wrocław. As at 2006, the town has a population of 6,181.

Prior to 1945 it was in Germany. After World War II the region was placed under Polish administration and ethnically cleansed according to the post-war Potsdam Agreement. The native German populace was expelled and replaced with Poles.

Lądek-Zdrój became famous in Poland because of Stanisław Bareja's cult film Incredibly Peaceful Man (Niespotykanie spokojny człowiek).
