Lewandowski's father, Krzysztof, was a Polish judo champion, and also played football for Hutnik Warszawa in the second division. His mother, Iwona, is a former volleyball player for AZS Warszawa and later vice-president of Partyzant Leszno. His sister, Milena, also plays volleyball and has represented the U21 national team. His girlfriend, Anna Stachurska, won the bronze medal at the 2009 Karate World Cup.
In 2006–07, Lewandowski was the Polish third division's top goal scorer with 15 goals, helping Znicz Pruszków win promotion. The next season he was the top scorer in the Polish second division with 21 goals.
He made his debut for Lech in July 2008 as a sub in a first round UEFA Cup qualifier versus Khazar Lenkoran from Azerbaijan. In that match he scored the only goal of the match. During his Ekstraklasa debut in the first game of the season in a match against GKS Bełchatów he scored a heel flick goal just four minutes after coming into the game late second half. In his first season in the Polish top division, he was second in the goal-scoring charts. The next season, he became top scorer with 18 goals and helped his team win the 2009–10 championship.
In 2010, rumors emerged linking Lewandowski with various clubs, particularly Borussia Dortmund, Genoa C.F.C., and Blackburn Rovers. On 5 May Borussia Dortmund's general manager Michael Zorc stated that Lewandowski had agreed verbally to join the Bundesliga club. However, negotiations between the clubs went on for several weeks. On May 19, it was reported that he had undergone medical exams at Borussia and on 11 June 2010, he signed a four-year contract with the German club in a transfer thought to be worth around €4.5 million. On 19 September he scored his first goal in the Bundesliga to make it 3–0 in the Revierderby against Schalke 04, the game ended 3–1.
Lewandowski made three appearances for Poland's U21 team, in friendly matches against England, Belarus and Finland.
