This seed spawns players on the coast of a desert biome, around which some islands can be found. Among these islands is a rock formation that bears a striking resemblance to the Sphinx in Giza. Since desert biomes require less terraforming and cleaning up, this area would be perfect for a castle built based in Ancient Egypt.


4) Turtle Island (Seed: 6105164681913734231)

This seed spawns players in the middle of a large island shaped like a turtle. The island contains a small oak forest and is surrounded by beaches. This would make it a good spot for a castle build, as the water around it makes it an impenetrable fortress.


3). Expansive Plains (Seed:-423673225502336066 )

This seed spawns a player near three biomes, a savanna, a desert and a huge plains biome. The plains biome is fairly flat, and provides ample space for a massive castle to be built, which the two other biomes will provide a nice change in scenery from time to time.

Additionally, a small river can be seen bubbling away near the spawn. This can act as a moat.


2) Island Castle (Seed: -6296571890134749870)

The seed kicks off on an expansive island with an oak forest biome. The trees within the forest will have to be cleared for enough space to build a castle. However, players will find that once the trees have been cleared, the landscape is quite flat, and ideal for a castle build.

Additionally, the forest will provide a surplus of wood, which can be helpful in survival.


1) Desert temple and village at spawn (Seed: -7492801512473941435)

This fascinating seed spawns players near a desert village and a desert pyramid. While the desert temple gives a ton of loot, there's more to the seed. Two exposed spider spawners can be found side by side, right adjacent to the desert temple.

Additionally, a small, circular lake can be found a few blocks away from the village, the area around which can be perfect for a castle build.


Building castles in Minecraft is a commitment that leaves the player satisfied and smiling. Castle builds are some of the most rewarding building experiences in the game, and every player is recommended to try them.
