Chmieleń [ˈxmjɛlɛɲ] (German: Langwasser) is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Lubomierz, within Lwówek Śląski County, Lower Silesian Voivodeship, in south-western Poland.[1] It lies approximately 5 kilometres (3 mi) south-west of Lubomierz, 17 kilometres (11 mi) south-west of Lwówek Śląski, and 111 kilometres (69 mi) west of the regional capital Wrocław.

Prior to 1945 it was in Germany. After World War II the region was placed under Polish administration by the Potsdam Agreement under territorial changes demanded by the Soviet Union. Most Germans fled or were expelled and replaced with Poles expelled from the Polish areas annexed by the Soviet Union.
