One of the most endearing things about Minecraft is that it gives the player complete freedom to do whatever they want given the materials they have. Whether you are playing in creative or survival mode, you can build whatever structures you want. For a structure that will give you an imposing aerial view and simply look awesome, try making a tower. Here are some of the best Minecraft tower designs we have found from across the internet.

Best Minecraft tower designs, concepts, and ideas

Amethyst tower

Amethyst will give your towers a crystallized look that could easily fit into a fantasy setting. If you are making a structure in a wooded area, this is one of our top choices to make it really stand out.

Easy medieval tower

This medieval tower is particularly easy to build in survival. It isn’t the most amazing looking tower, but if you are looking to add a smaller tower to your home area, this gets the job done. It is made of Mossy and regular Cobblestone, Smooth Stone, and a few wooden pieces.

Epic tower

This self-proclaimed epic tower lives up to its name. Starting at the bottom is a dungeon-like looking entrance, with the midsection taking the form of a more traditional building and a topping that could befit a castle.

Medieval lighthouse

Light up the night sky with this lighthouse made of stone and wood. Whether you want to put it in front of a body of water or simply use it in the middle of your home area, this lighthouse looks great during the day and at night.

Modern tower

Here is a modern looking tower that might not have the most unique looking base, but once you reach the top it has very octopus-like looking arms stretching above it. Typically, you don’t consider this kind of design in Minecraft, but we love how unique it is.


If you want a true modern structure, this skyscraper will come in loudly. If you are building yourself a city, we highly recommend making at least one skyscraper to stand above everything else and become the focal point of your location.

Tall tower

What good is a tower if it does not actually tower over the rest of your land? This tower is insanely tall and complicated with many branching appendages and swirling design choices. Here is a true building challenge.

Treehouse tower


Most people do not consider the prospect of turning a treehouse into a tower. Stand out from the rest with these living quarters that will get you closer to nature.


Watchtowers will be great for looking over your land no matter what biomes surround you. There isn’t much on the inside, but these are really only used to get you up high quickly.

Wizard tower

This wizard tower is impressive, made up of many different materials, and reaches high into the air. As good-looking as the tower is on the outside, the inside looks even better, stacked with bookcases and other items that a wizard would use.
