The crystal structure of the title compound, (C6H11N2)(3-)[EuBr6], consists of 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium cations and centrosymmetric octahedral hexabromidoeuropate anions. The [EuBr6](3-) anions are located at the corners and face-centres of the monoclinic unit cell. Characteristic hydrogen-bonding interactions can be observed between the bromide anions and the acidic H atoms of the imidazolium cations.
