In Paris, the CAC 40 index shed 0.61 percent to stand at 4,207.20 points compared with Tuesday's close.
Europe's main indices open lower after two days of gains and following a sharp fall on Wall Street on Tuesday in a sell-off analysts attributed to anxiety over the possibility of a significant downward correction to share prices after recent gains.
