The 2013 IIHF Ice Hockey European Championships was the 47th edition of the Ice Hockey European Championships hosted by the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF), and was played between 2013 in the Finnish cities of Helsinki and Turku. The two venues were the Hartwall Areena and the HK Arena.

The host team Sweden won the team's 11th title in history by defeating Switzerland in the final 5–1. Switzerland sent a clear message about their recently improved hockey program by going undefeated through the tournament before the final; finishing first in their group (ahead of Finland); and earning their second silver medal in history, as well as the team's first medal since 2001. Hosts Finland captured the bronze medal with a 3–2 shootout victory over the Soviet Union. Switzerland's Roman Josi was named the most valuable player of the tournament.
