The IIHF European Women Championships is a former international competition of Women ice hockey between nations in Europe.


The competition was organized by International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) and was played from 1989 at 1996 in years when there was no World Championship. In 1997, this competition ceased because every year there would be either an IIHF World Women's Championships or an Olympic tournament.
