Lewin Kłodzki [ˈlɛvin ˈkwɔt͡ski] (German: Lewin, 1939–1945: Hummelstadt; Czech: Levín) is a village in the Sudetes, in Kłodzko County, Lower Silesian Voivodeship, in south-western Poland, near the border with the Czech Republic.[1] It is the seat of the administrative district (gmina) called Gmina Lewin Kłodzki. Between 1742–1945 it was located in Prussia. After World War II the region was placed under Polish administration according to the post-war Potsdam Agreement. The native German populace was expelled and replaced with Poles.

It lies approximately 27 kilometres (17 mi) west of Kłodzko, and 96 kilometres (60 mi) south-west of the regional capital Wrocław.

The village has a population of 1,200.
