Regrenita by TomatoN is great example of a perfect Minecraft castle. It's pure fantasy mixed with royalty and nothing makes a Minecraft castle better than two dragons. The giant wall that encases the castle is also a lovely touch.
The name sounds a bit odd - until you load it up and have a walk around, that is. The sheer time and effort that's gone into Angelville one is hard to parse: along with the castle itself, which takes hours to explore, you've got a few further structure, including a chapel. The heavenly view from the top of the castle is well worth the climb, too.
The Steampunk Castle is a bit different, but since it still has castle in the name, we're counting it. Along with the impressive frontage of the structure, there's lots to do inside. Secrets are scattered everywhere, and there's even a narrative to follow.
Castle and Gladiator Arena
This castle is the one to rule them all. Not only do you have the castle, plus the sizeable grounds it is set within, and plenty more. The arena is a great place to settle old scores, the church is there for all your confessional needs, and there's even a huge tree with oodles of treehouse potential. The Castle And Gladiator Arena has everything you could want from a Minecraft castle.
What if instead of one castle, you could own nine castles in one? Falcon’s Rock, a recreation of Medieval era Germany, offers you the chance to do just that, providing a single ‘castle’ which is actually made up of nine castles, seven villages, one city, and a monastery all inside one larger castle. It is a huge feat of Medieval architecture, and is a sight not to be missed.
Castle Speire of Aeritus
There are plenty of recreations of impressive castles (including the entry below, in fact) but it's the mythos and world-building evoked by Castle Speire of Aeritus that sets it apart. It's exceptional. There's even a vast surrounding town to explore plus some cool blimps just hanging about, doing whatever it is they do.
Castles are about dominance, defence, and fortitude, but they’re also supposed to be about elegance and refinement. A status symbol like no other; a home literally fit for a king or queen. The French Chateau, modeled off the Jardis du Chateau du Pin in Angers, fits that to a tee. With lavish gardens complete with water fountains, you can stare down in splendor from the Queen’s Chambers atop the tower, or entertain guests in the ballroom. Whatever you do, in the French Chateau, you’ll be doing it in style.
Sometimes it's not the building itself that's breathtaking, but the setting. While the recreation of the classic Game of Thrones castle itself is faithful enough to keep fans of the show happy, the detail devoted to its surroundings is also worth noting. The scenery is harsh, and the castle looks impenetrable; in other words, it's pretty much perfect. Unlike Game of Thrones, Dragonstone won’t fall apart right at the end, either.
Super Mario Peach’s Castle
You know all those times when you couldn’t decide whether to play Minecraft or Super Mario? Well, those days are a thing of the past, thanks to the Super Mario Peach’s Castle. This castle replicates the famous Super Mario 64 iteration of the castle, and lets you own an iconic piece of gaming history.
