20 Best Minecraft Castle Ideas

Small Castle 

Yes, you heard it right, a small castle. Perfect for beginners, but don’t take the name so seriously. Because it still requires a lot of time to build the castle. Beginners can use wood and cobblestone blocks to create one and when it comes to the pros they take their creativity to a whole new level. 

Minecraft Survival Castle Base 

Another safe build is the Minecraft survival castle base, with an in-build farm and enchantment workstation. It has more functionality than the previous one and you can build your own custom flag at the top of the castle, which can be seen from a very far distance. The rock-solid structure saves you from incoming dangers. That’s what you expect from a survival castle.

Easy Survival Castle

One thing about Minecraft is that you don’t say in one place, you are on an infinite adventure. For that, we present you with an easy survival castle. Just a basic structure with a castle look, that can be used for temporary says and it is easy to build. The wood and cobblestone combination gives it a classy look, that will make your stay vintage. We recommend adding torches to add a more historic look.

Small Stone Castle with Watchtower

The small stone castle can be built near your main base, where you can capture a princess from another kingdom. Just kidding, a watchtower will add a historic look to your small castle. And from the top, you can get a view of the surroundings and maybe you can enjoy the sunrise. The height of the watch tower is up to you. 

Minecraft Mountain Castle Idea

Talking about a castle and a big mountain that doesn’t come to mind is quite unfair. That’s why we present you with Minecraft Mountain Castle, built at a top of the mountain will give you that movie-type look that enemies might think before raiding the castle. Build at a top of a mountain, we recommend you build it on a mountain full of snow. And the look it’ll give during dusk or dawn will be breathtaking. You’ll be proud of the build. 

Now the builds are going to become mega and complicated and at the same time more beautiful. 


Yes, you heard it right Hogwarts. For beginners, it might seem like an impossible build. But out there are many hardcore Minecraft and Harry Potter fans who took things to a whole new level by building the iconic Hogwarts castle. If you are also a hardcore Harry Potter fan then go and add the secrets of Hogwarts to your build. 

Disney Castle 

Many of you must be waiting for this build. The iconic Disney Castle, just like the previous build is one of the most complicated yet iconic builds on this list. If you’ve ever been to Disney land then you must be aware of the adventures hidden in the castle. And if you have never been to one then make one of your own and add elements to it. You can add a roller coaster ride to it and whatnot. 

Dracula Castle

We’ve talked about Hogwarts and Disney Castle but what about the horror fans? That’s when we present you with the Dracula-themed castle. During broad daylight, the castle looks magnificent but at night things take a dark turn. Who knows what mystery the castle keeps and who lives in the castle? One way to find out is to make one of your own and add mysteries to it.

Floating Castle 

Yes! a castle that floats mid-air. One of the most beautiful creations on this list, you’ll need a lot of patience and hard work to make one. Even if you make a small one or a big one, it’ll look amazing. Even the enemies will be jealous to see the build. Just imagine flexing the build in front of your friends. We recommend you make it at the top of a water body or valley. And yaa don’t just open the door and run toward the exit, either you’ll find yourself falling. 

Island fortress

Looking out of the window and you see water all around, what a soothing experience. This experience you can get from an Island fortress, surrounded by the ocean, you can create it on an island. If you add farms and small buildings you can call it a small civilization. However, most of your journey will happen on a boat. 

Japanese Castle 

The first impression of this castle will be like a samurai living in it. The look itself will tell it is based on a Japanese theme, one of the best ways to unite the international community. With colorful wood, lanterns, and a lot of curving roofs, this castle sticks to a strict Japanese style.

King’s Landing

All the Game of Thrones fans knows what’s coming next: the iconic build from the show’s Westeros. The fans of Game of Thrones are everywhere; you can invite them and build the structure together. As we all know, winter is coming, and the night is dark and full of terrors. 

Medieval castle

The medieval times have their own magnificent creations, just like our next structure. The Medieval Castle is surrounded by many small towers and houses that’ll give you a look at a small kingdom. And if you add Villagers and animals then you can create your own kingdom. Remember to cover the entire structure with torches cause you don’t want a creeper to appear and blow up your structure. 

Castle with Traps 

One of the most entertaining builds on this list. As it sounds the castle is full of traps. Make a strategy and place your traps then invite your friends to explore the castle. Seeing them getting surprised and getting killed by the traps will give you a joyful feeling. This fortress is full of clever traps that will quickly murder any looters or hostile mobs.

Minecraft Desert Castle

The deserts are vast in Minecraft and seeing a castle in between will give a pleasant view to the explorers. This palace takes the desert concept and amplifies it. It is modular and easy to construct.

Underground Castle 

We have already seen a Castle on the top of a mountain, on an island, on a desert and whatnot. Now it’s time to take things underground. You may simply construct one with a smeltery, storehouse, brewing station, and everything else in between. 

Minecraft Redstone Piston Castle 

A castle that operates on its own. Opening and closing doors just by pulling a lever. For the beginner, it might be a challenging process to place the pistons. However, the automatic process will give you a visual treat. You can certainly create a castle with an automated door, a self-expanding bridge, and other features. And perhaps a secret chamber in the library. 

Glass Castle in Minecraft

As it sounds, a castle made out of glass. Almost all of Minecraft’s castle concepts revolve around brightly colored bricks and aesthetic motifs. However, not this one. It removes all of the colors and textures to reveal a translucent castle constructed entirely of glass bricks. But yeah you won’t get any privacy here.

The Taj Mahal 

The structure represents true love. Making the Taj Mahal is a complicated process, but in the end, you’ll see beauty. You’ll get a chance to live in a historic structure and maybe invite your loved ones too. However, you may still construct it in Minecraft if you haven’t seen the actual structure. 

Dragon Palace 

Last but not the least, the Dragon Palace. In our world, most fairy tales including a castle and a kingdom aren’t complete until a dragon appears. So there’s no reason why it shouldn’t be the same in the world of Minecraft. With that in mind, your next castle concept focuses on a dragon island that seems like it belongs in a movie. You can add the ender dragon’s head on the entrance to add charms to your build.
