Zachełmie [zaˈxɛu̯mjɛ] (German: Saalberg) is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Podgórzyn, within Jelenia Góra County, Lower Silesian Voivodeship, in south-western Poland.[1] It lies approximately 3 kilometres (2 mi) south-west of Podgórzyn, 11 km (7 mi) south-west of Jelenia Góra, and 103 km (64 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 and ethnically cleansed according to the post-war Potsdam Agreement. The native German populace was expelled and replaced with Poles.
