Węgornik [vɛnˈɡɔrnik] (German: Aalgraben) is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Police, within Police County, West Pomeranian Voivodeship, in north-western Poland, close to the German border.[1] It lies approximately 12 kilometres (7 mi) west of Police and 20 km (12 mi) north-west of the regional capital Szczecin.

Before 1945 the area was part of Germany. Following World War II the native German populace was expelled and replaced by Poles. For the history of the region, see History of Pomerania.
