The European Men's Artistic Gymnastics Championships are an artistic gymnastics championships for male gymnasts from European countries organised by the European Union of Gymnastics.

Originally held biannually in odd-numbered years, the championships moved to even numbered years in 1990. In 2005 a second set of championships were introduced, titled the "individual championships". Although numbered as a separate event, winners in either event are considered European champions, and the championships as a result have in effect become an annual event, but in two formats; in even numbered years, a stand alone men's event incorporates the European Junior Artistic Gymnastics championships (a entirely separate women's competition is held in the same years), while in odd numbered years, the separately numbered 'Individual championships' are held in conjunction with the women's competition of the same description, but without juniors, as a single event.

As a result, there is no individual all-around title awarded in even numbered years (except for juniors), and similarly no team all-around title awarded in odd numbered years. Otherwise the apparatus and titles are identical.
