This beautiful castle consumes a bit of time, effort, and resources. A castle in the style of the Middle Ages is a timeless classic that works well in any context, area, or climate. It can be built on a cliff with a view of the hamlet or a mountainside isolated from the rest of the world. It'll still have a powerful presence.

Pink Minecraft castle

These castles are more friendly and girly. So most of the female players may prefer building their childhood dream castles or Barbie castles in pink. It's also adorably charming, cute, and eye-catching. Aside from the unusual shade, the silhouette and overall structure are pretty simple. A little imagination, a lot of patience, and a lot of pink dye are the keys to making it stand out.

How to make a Minecraft castle?

As we have seen several types of castles that had made by Minecraft players we will see how to make a simple castle of your own. I should again mention that the creativity of the castle is depending on your creativity.

You'll need to gather some building materials before you can start building a castle in Minecraft. You can build a castle out of any material you like. So just gather enough blocks to get started. The basic materials you will need to gather are,

  • Stone
  • Cobblestone
  • Obsidian
  • Terracotta

Once you gathered enough materials for your castle, you have to find a proper location for your castle. Then follow the following steps.

  1. Make two 15-block-long walls, one opposite to the other.
  2. Build two towers at the end of each wall. (Four towers in total.)
  3. Create two 9 block walls.
  4. Place two towers at the end of each wall.
  5. Begin constructing the walls to whichever height you like, with the towers positioned just above them.
  6. Except constructing the front of the castle, start laying blocks above and beneath the walls.
  7. Place a one-block platform at the top of each of the castle's four walls.
  8. Increase the height of each tower and the four walls even more.
  9. Use blocks to fill the roof.
  10. Fill in the towers and surround them all with a one-block wall. You will be able to sit at the top of each tower and survey your kingdom as a result of this.
  11. Build an eight-block high wall around the entryway, leaving a gap in the center for a door.
  12. Fill in the roof and raise the two entrance towers to any height you like.
  13. Begin by adding windows to the castle's walls and emulating a drawbridge with wooden blocks.
  14. Finish your castle as your wish.

Good luck with making your kingdom. Visit the previous guide about Minecraft Speedrun, and more game tips are here.
