London's benchmark FTSE 100 index dropped 0.56 percent to 6,645.05 points and Frankfurt's DAX 30 slid 1.14 percent to 9,084.52.
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.
Traders said markets were weighed down also by worries that the conflict in Ukraine could worsen. --AFP
