Organisers have confirmed that this year's ceremony will take place in Frankfurt's historic Festhalle on Sunday, November 11.
President and CEO of Viacom International Bob Bakish said: "We're thrilled to be returning to Frankfurt and once again presenting the MTV EMAs in such a vibrant and dynamic city.
"The MTV EMAs are without a doubt one of the biggest nights in music on the planet and showcases talent from the US to Europe to Asia to everywhere in between.
"This year's show in Frankfurt will definitely continue the EMA tradition of capturing the world's attention through unforgettable performances and jaw-dropping moments."
It will mark the second time the MTV EMAs have been held at Frankfurt's Festhalle.
Last year's ceremony was held at Belfast's Odyssey Arena and included performances from Lady GaGa, Coldplay and Jessie J.
