The 2016 European Darts Open was the sixth of ten European Tour events on the 2016 PDC Pro Tour. The tournament took place at Maritim Hotel in Düsseldorf, Germany, between 29–31 July 2016. It featured a field of 48 players and £115,000 in prize money, with £25,000 going to the winner.

Robert Thornton was the defending champion, but he lost in the second round to Wes Newton.

Michael van Gerwen won his second European Darts Open title after defeating Peter Wright 6–5 in the final.[1]

Qualification and format[edit]

The top 16 players from the PDC ProTour Order of Merit on 13 May automatically qualified for the event and were seeded in the second round.[2] The remaining 32 places went to players from three qualifying events - 20 from the UK Qualifier (held in Coventry on 20 May),[3] eight from the European Qualifier on 1 June[4] and four from the Host Nation Qualifier on 28 July.

On 27 July 2016, Phil Taylor withdrew from the tournament, moving seeds 14-16 up a place, and promoting Alan Norris to 16 seed, which also meant a 5th Host Nation Qualifier would also qualify for the tournament.

The following players will take part in the tournament:
