Dzierzki [ˈd͡ʑeʂki] (German: Althöfen)[1] is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Jedwabno, within Szczytno County, Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship, in northern Poland.[2] It lies approximately 9 kilometres (6 mi) west of Szczytno and 35 km (22 mi) south-east of the regional capital Olsztyn.

Before 1945 the area was part of Germany (East Prussia). After World War II the area was placed under Polish administration by the Potsdam Agreement under territorial changes demanded by the Soviet Union. Germans fled or were expelled and replaced with Poles expelled from the Polish areas annexed by the Soviet Union or forced to settle in the area through Operation Vistula in 1947.

The village has a population of 70.
