Minecraft is by far one of the biggest gaming titles in the modern era. The masterpiece was developed by Swedish-based Mojang Studios. It features a 3D sandbox world where the whole environment is made up of cube blocks. The player has the freedom to explore, build, and fight in the outstandingly huge and beautiful world. To cater to the needs of all the players, we have compiled the Best Minecraft Backgrounds.
- Author’s Note: You can trust and rely on my expertise since I’ve gone through Minecraft for well over 275 hours.

The game cover makes for one of the best Minecraft wallpapers. It features Steve and Alex alongside some friendly and some hostile mobs, which include; a pig, sheep, wolf, skeleton, zombie, spider, and creeper. The showcases the vastness of the Minecraft world, it is by far the most basic background but, nonetheless, one of the best.
Minecraft has some amazing landscapes despite the whole world consisting of 3D blocks. The game still somehow continues to amaze us at every corner. Hence, the aerial view of a house in the lake happens to be a worthy image for it to be included here. This image from our best Minecraft background list is a great pick for scenic lovers.
Here is another Minecraft wallpaper with a nice shaded view of a stream between Oak trees. The image lets out a peaceful vibe and can also be a great background while listening to slow music.
Here is a Minecraft animation of a workstation. Which includes a few chests with grass blocks in them. Other than that there are a few cobblestone blocks, a sword, and a diamond pickaxe. The wallpaper is pretty decent and minimal with one of the best animations I have seen.
Many Minecraft fans would have seen this image before as well. It’s by far one of the most popular Minecraft wallpaper, animated by u/MagmaGuy_ on Reddit. It shows a skeleton falling down a ditch, which should be its end. The whole scene is being spectated by a pig which adds a funny element to the whole image.
That relationship will probably blow up after a while. So try keeping your distance when that happens! The cool animation shows Steve and Creeper hugging each other, in what seems to be a parallel universe. I can also see the jungle biome in the background, which adds a scenic touch to the image as well.
Our first minimalistic wallpaper on our list of best Minecraft Background. in the current age, many people like setting up their wallpaper as modest as it can get. Hence, this image is a great option for these people, it features a tiny island with a tree and a waterfall running down the sides.
Can you guess which mob that is? It’s not hostile in the morning, and the sun doesn’t affect it. But at night it will attack you on sight. It can also climb over walls which is why you need to make a roof above your head. Did you get it yet? It’s a Spider! I found the image pretty cool not to include it in this collection.
Overworld and The Nether
Another one for minimalistic lovers. I found the amazing artwork on Reddit, which covers almost everything in Minecraft in a small space. The image shows the night and morning sky, along with a pig in a forest, a cave, and finally the nether. Even tho it features one of the most hated mobs in Minecraft, The Ghast, it’s still a great wallpaper.
One of our favorite picks on the best Minecraft wallpapers list. There is so much awe-inspiring stuff going on in this image. You can see a huge tree that resembles the ‘Hometree’ from Avatar, there’s Steve, in the middle of the lake, on the left corner of the image. Apart from all that, there are so many structures and buildings at the far end of the image.
Another great aerial view of the Minecraft world. However this time I have a view of The End, home of the Enderdragon. It’s one of the toughest places in the game, infested with Endermans. The image also shows a lot of stars which adds a lot of eerieness to the whole place.
A Minecraft wallpaper with a prominent title in the center. The title perfectly fits the surroundings of a cave where I can notice a few torches and a lava pool. Oh, and there’s also a creeper creeping at you so be careful! Some people don’t like the game title on the wallpaper, hence, you can skip this one.
One of the sickest wallpaper in our collection from the internet. Many Minecraft enthusiasts would know the legend of ‘Herobrine’, the evil counterpart of Steve. In the image, there is a full moon out and Steve seems to be rolling down the forest with his diamond sword. Little does he know that there is something way more sinister stalking him.
A great option for PC wallpaper. There’s not much going on in the image, just a torch lamp next to some stones. The rest of the picture is all black which offers great space to set up icons on your desktop easily. If you’re a minimalistic wallpaper lover, then you can also go for it.

Who would have thought that a collab between The Matrix and a Creeper would make a cool wallpaper? Well, here you are, including this art on our list of Best Minecraft Wallpapers. It accurately shows that the creeper does indeed have its eye on everything that goes on in the overworld.
Next up, we have an aerial view of a packed metropolis city. The amount of effort people put into Minecraft is mindblowing, especially, when they come up with such amazing-looking projects. In the image, there are multiple buildings, structures, and an overhead train. We just love how color-packed the image is.
No, pigs can’t fly in Minecraft. Yet, it’s a funny wallpaper to have, additionally, there isn’t much going on which offers a lot of space to customize your desktop screen if you want to. The image features a Pegasus x Pig hybrid, with a clear open sky.
If only you could take a nap in the daytime. Nevertheless, another great scenic Wallpaper makes it onto our list. You can see Steve chilling on his bed while his diamond sword rests on the side. There’s also a small chest nearby and an untapped island in the background.
There’s nothing more serene than a beach house in Minecraft. We have another picturesque Minecraft wallpaper, which has no mobs in sight. The color scheme is quite calming which makes it a very pleasing wallpaper to have. So if you’re someone who likes the beach houses in the game then this inclusion in the Best Minecraft Wallpaper was meant for you!
Any Game of Thrones fans here? Here we have the famous ‘Wall‘ from Game of Thrones, which is built to keep the Free Folk and the White Walkers out. In the image, we can see Castle Black, along with its long elevator. If you truly adored Jon Snow and the Night’s Watch then you can simply click the link and download the image in an instant!
Tranquility is important from time to time. Even Steve deserves it after working tirelessly in a massive world. Resting on a diamond block with a diamond pickaxe has to be one of the biggest flex. The image makes use of an actual background of a vast field and an open sky, with Steve animated into it. It’s simple yet beautiful.
Here we have a Minecraft Wallpaper which shows multiple in-game blocks. These are not their base design, it has texture pack installed over them. Still, it’s a very clean-looking background and is quite straightforward. There are multiple ores, stone, nether, storage, and wooden blocks in the image.
One of the most painful deaths in Minecraft. You could only wish to land on the water since that’s the only way you won’t die. In the overworld, there are many ravines and at times there are unnoticeable from distance. Which could lead up to the player’s eventual fall. Nevertheless, it’s still a great Wallpaper to go for because the shot is quite aesthetic.
Did you know the Minecraft world stretches to about 30 million blocks in each direction from your spawn point? That is probably the biggest map ever in the gaming industry, and on a comparative scale, the Minecraft world is larger than Earth itself. Hence, this Wallpaper is one of the top ones on our list as it showcases the massive world Mojang has created.
An eerie-looking Wallpaper, which screams danger from every direction. The image is taken in what seems to be a Mineshaft. On top of that, there’s also a spawner block in the middle, although it’s empty and has torches placed around it. The Mineshaft has tons of mobs and can be home to poisonous spiders too. Regardless of all that, it’s still a pretty great PC wallpaper to have.
A simplistic art that showcases the two major sides of Minecraft. On the left side, you can see a pickaxe with ‘Mine’ written over it, on the right, there’s a sword with ‘Craft’ written over it. You don’t necessarily craft with a sword but still, we found the wallpaper art pretty decent to include it here.
Another Minecraft Wallpaper with a texture pack installed. Yet, it’s still very relaxing to the eye, the shade of the deep woods and within it a railroad. You can also see Steve on top of a minecart riding the tracks. Apart from being a good background it also gives a nice fun building idea.
A detailed image of the top of a grass block. The grass block is the most common and a title featuring block in Minecraft. Once you begin playing the game you will notice these blocks are everywhere and they bring out a vibrant effect on the world. The image is quite common which is why it was a pretty easy pick on our Best Minecraft Backgrounds list.
Tiny Island #2
Similar to one of the previous wallpapers. However, this one is way more detailed. You can see a floating island with a lone tree on it. There’s a waterfall, and on the side of it, you can notice Steve relaxing on a seat. The image is crafted by Drotth, and its minimal design makes it one of the Best Minecraft Wallpapers.
Eye of Ender
Eye of Sauron? No, this is the Eye of Enderman. Which is one of the most crucial items in the whole game. You get to see some of the intricate details of the eye in the HD Wallpaper. The Eye of Enderman is crafted by combining blaze powder with Ender pearl. The player needs it to reach The End and face the Enderdragon. Hence, the significance of the Eye of Ender, makes the image a great wallpaper to have.
The image shows a bird-eye view of an Oak forest. There’s also a stream running through the forest, which is a great place to get some clay, squid ink, and fish. Despite all of that, the contrast of the green forest along with the flowing water presents us with a great option for a PC Wallpaper.
There can never be too many scenic Minecraft wallpapers. They are just too good not to be included in our list of Best Minecraft Wallpapers. Here you get to see a grounded view from a lake that perfectly aligns with the setting sun. The picture is absolutely gorgeous in all aspects and is by far one of the prettiest backgrounds.
There is no shortage of amazing artwork when it comes to Minecraft. There is so much amazingly drawn artwork that it leaves us in awe. Here you can see the character entering a dark cave with a diamond sword. Even though it may end up being a death wish but it is good to see a nice armor set on him. Despite that, the artwork makes for a great background image.
The image shows a nicely self-sufficient house. It’s a great house-building idea, there’s ample farming space along with sugarcanes on the sides of a man-made water stream. We can also see a cave leading to dark depths of Minecraft on the bottom right side of the image. Placed within the forest, the image exhibits a very calming atmosphere.
Another great option for a PC Wallpaper. The image was taken from inside a cave and it shows a well-planned village which a few houses, farms, and nicely built stairs. The architecture is minimal yet very neat. Other than that the cobblestone background on the sides is great to set up your icons without disrupting the beauty of the image.
The night sky is something truly mesmerizing in Minecraft, especially if you have a great texture pack installed. The lighting perfectly adds to the ambiance of the image. Lanterns are one of the best lighting blocks in Minecraft. The dock is one of the must things to have around your house. Here we can see a boot docked right next to the landing platform.
Talking about docked boats, here is another similar wallpaper to the previous one. However, the image shows daytime, and the rays coming through the leaves from the background add an amazing touch. The image screams serenity from all corners, which is why this is one of the most calming Best Minecraft Backgrounds on the list.
Stream With A Sunset
Well, the collection took quite a turn and has now featured a few water shots from Minecraft. However, we’re not complaining as these are one of the Best Minecraft Wallpapers you will find across the internet. The image shows water flowing between two cliffs, there are two slanted trees at the end which form a delightful arc. The sun rays shining through between the trees and bouncing off the water take the image to a whole new level!
Cherry Blossom Tree
A night sky along with a couple of beacons, but only one thing stands out, and it’s the huge cherry blossom tree. These trees are mesmerizing in real life, and to make one at such a big scale in the game is truly amazing and worthy of being included on this list. The image yet again features a texture pack, but that doesn’t concern us, as it adds more depth to the Wallpaper.
The Final Dance
There’s no turning back. What seems to be one of the worst-case scenarios in Minecraft makes for an amazing background for a PC. The image shows some of the deadliest mobs in the game with Steve cornered up, ready to face them all. However, we don’t think that an iron sword would be of much help. Regardless, it still is an amazing Minecraft background.
The Might of the Dragon
One of the most epic images we have included in the list of Best Minecraft Wallpapers. The image features The End, which is the penultimate point in Minecraft. In the picture we can see the mightiest boss in the game, Enderdragon, rounding up Steve, who is armored to the brim. The confidence of Steve and the might of the Dragon creates a masterpiece that you can set as your Wallpaper.
While we saw the Enderdragon in a hostile mood in the previous image, here we get to see it in a much friendlier mood. There is also a baby Enderdargon next to it, both of them are cozying up against the fire in the Overworld. Even though you won’t find dragons in the overworld, the image is still a good choice to be used as a background.
Another image of cornered Steve. However, this time we’ll give him the benefit of the doubt and say that he survived the fight. After all, he has his dog on his side, which gives him extra protection. Nonetheless, if you’re someone who’s looking for a cinematic wallpaper, then you can go for it without a doubt.
Nothing beats a fortress in Minecraft. These monumental structures add some amazing depth to the whole area. In the image, we can see a fortress castle on top of two hills connected by a vine-covered bridge. At the bottom, there is a small town. The whole area seems to be surrounded by a thick wall to keep the enemies out. It’s a great Wallpaper to have if you love some medieval architecture!
Designed by a talented artist called ‘Badbones69’, here we have a workstation that seems like was raided by a bunch of skeletons. The furnace is still running which means the player retreated and will return soon. There are a bunch of weapons and armor lying around with plenty of arrows stuck in the wall. The image’s color scheme along with the lava pool is why it looks even better to the eye.
Calling It A Day
Done for the day. The image shows Steve all dressed up in diamond armor. The HD wallpaper shows the beautifully texturized grass along with some of Steve’s equipment laying around. Which includes his Diamond sword, shovel, axe, and pickaxe in his hand. The picture doesn’t have much going on but it’s a great wallpaper due to its high quality and detailing.
Medieval Town #2
Probably one of the best architecture projects we have seen in Minecraft. This is exactly why it’s one of the Best Minecraft Backgrounds. In the far distance, you can see a castle on top of a cliff. There’s also a ship sailing towards a town. On the bottom right corner, we can also see the town’s colorful market square. The image has a lot of stuff going on and everything is built to such pinpoint precision.
Previously, we saw a zoomed-in picture of a Spider’s face. However, over here we present you a much friendlier mob, the beloved Cow. The cow can provide you with leather, meat, and even milk which is highly useful whenever you’re sick. Hence, the cow is one of Steve’s best friends, which is why it makes it onto our list of best Minecraft backgrounds.
A simple Minecraft Background. The image only makes use of the color black and white. It expresses a scene from the game that most of the players have very commonly experienced. As Steve is running, he is being chased by a Zombie, Creeper, while a Skeleton continues to fire his arrows. There’s also a random chicken in between the whole situation. We hope Steve didn’t run out of his sprint due to his low hunger.
Red Dead Minecraft
Steve and Donkey in Red Dead Redemption? That collab is probably too much to ask for, but the foggy atmosphere along with lone riding does resemble Red Dead Redemption. Nevertheless, the image is very soothing to look at with a bunch of flowers in sight. This is why this was a no-brainer inclusion on our list.
Nothing beats a relaxing book-reading time in your library after a long day’s work. The open chest, dimly lit room and the crackling fire in the fireplace complete the zen look of the whole image. Put the image as your Wallpaper and combine it with some lo-fi music and you will be in a whole new zone!
As funny as the image is, we recommend you not to try it in the game. Sure, you can ride a pig by equipping a fishing rod with a carrot at its end. But in no circumstances will the creeper run away from you. Nonetheless, the expressions of the mobs in the image make the picture a compulsory inclusion in our Top Minecraft Backgrounds list.
Enderman In The Rain
We have yet another Wallpaper meant for minimalistic lovers. It is a known fact that Enderman is not fond of water. If you’re being chased by an Enderman your best bet would be to jump in a water body. Similarly, whenever it’s raining these shy creatures will frantically teleport around or will be nowhere near you. So the image illustrated that whole point in the simplest manner and we just love the artwork done here by ‘Threadless’.
Nothing is more calming than a crop field with a windmill in the background. The sunset is just a cherry on top of the picture. Calculated fields with symmetric patterns are always pleasing to look at. Hence, we had to include this great image in our Best Minecraft Background list.
Yet another architectural masterpiece in Minecraft, which makes for a great background. There are multiple towers with huge flags on top. What really makes the image stand out is the feeling of abandonment, it seems like nature has taken over what once was a great town. Vines and overgrown grass are sticking out of the towers. Regardless of it being from Minecraft, apocalyptic wallpapers are always great to have.
Medieval Town #3
Another medieval town is here to bless your PC screen. Making on to our Best Minecraft Background list is a town from a historic era in the snowy biome. The fortified walls in the surrounding with a town on the outskirts show how much effort was put into the project. Therefore, it was compulsory to include this piece of art in our guide.
The villager is having a party of his own. In the middle of the night, the image shows a jobless villager setting off fireworks. We can see one of the fireworks erupting in the background. The whole color scheme paired with the small light being emitted by the torch really makes the image stand out and become suitable as wallpaper.
Sky And The Sun
A beautiful screenshot was taken by ‘Rix’. The image shows the wonderful sunset in Minecraft, of course, the texture pack makes the image look a lot smoother. It resembles a classic scenic wallpaper that you repeatedly find on Google. However, the image above is exclusively from Minecraft. This is why it makes its way into the Best Minecraft Background list.
The sad life of a Skeleton. We have to feel for the dude, he spends most of his time walking around and everyone seems to run away from him. But to be honest those arrows can get pretty annoying. Anyways coming back to the picture we have a moonlit room where there’s a Skeleton chilling, probably contemplating life. Despite the theme of the picture, it is still one of the Best Minecraft Backgrounds.
Creeper As An Astronaut
That should be a pretty safe distance from a Creeper. We can see a Creeper with a glass head floating around in space. Other than the funny side, the image also shows the huge overworld of Minecraft with hundreds of stars in the background. Hence it’s a great picture from many different angles which is why we included it in our list of the Best Minecraft Backgrounds.
Sunset In The Swamp
The Swamp biome can be one of the prettiest areas in Minecraft if the lighting is spot on. And luckily, it is in the above picture. With a bunch of lilypads floating on the water and the vines hanging off the trees, the image reaches a whole new level with the amazing sunset on the horizon. This image was an easy pick for our Minecraft Wallpapers list.
Minecraft offers some of the greatest texture packs in any game. Most of these texture packs are great at revamping the lighting in the game. The image above is the best example of great lighting in texture packs. The perfect sun rays squeezing through the dark oak trees are mesmerizing to look at, which makes it a great option for wallpaper.
Alex And Steve In The Swamp
There’s plenty of talent in the world and when it comes to Minecraft artists we can’t see much more! This piece of art is an amazing addition to our list of Minecraft Backgrounds. It shows Alex and Steve rowing through a swamp biome, exploring the deep parts of a forest.
One of our top picks from the Best Minecraft Backgrounds. This animated wallpaper is breathtaking in all aspects. The character is standing in the middle of a forest with a torchlight in hand. There’s nothing but danger up ahead as we can see the stalking eyes of many spiders. The lighting effect with the dog makes the image fantastic in every way.
One for the ocean lovers. The aquatic update in Minecraft was one of the prettiest addition they made to the game (in close competition with the Lush Caves). In the image we get a nice view of a huge coral reef, it stretched as far as the eyes can see. If you’re a fan of coral reefs or the ocean itself then this Wallpaper is meant for you!
Don’t look into his eyes! Just like we saw a face close-up of a spider and a cow, now we have the infamous Enderman. Who is the last mob you want to make eye contact with. It’s completely neutral for as long as you don’t look into the purple eyes. Luckily, the wallpaper will let you stare into the hypnotizing eyes for as long as you want.
Our collection features all types of wallpapers so that we can cater to all kinds of choices of each Minecraft fan. Here we have a simple picture of Steve holding his Iron Pickaxe. The image just resonates with calm and good vibes because it also includes a village in the background which indicates that there are no deadly mobs nearby.
One of the best high-quality Wallpaper you will find in our collection of Minecraft Backgrounds. The character stands at the side of a lake with a torch in hand. There’s not much natural light in the image which indicated that it’s either dusk or dawn. The contrast of lighting in the image is what makes this piece stunning.
Terror In The Woods
Another very cinematic Wallpaper that makes perfect use of dynamic lighting. The image shows Steve wandering a forest during a foggy night with his dog. Little does he know that one of his worst nightmares lies right ahead of him lurking in the dark. The shadowy figure of the Enderman adds a sense of spookiness to the image.
This wallpaper is one of our top picks from the Best Minecraft Background Wallpapers. The reason for it is that the image reminds us of The Last of Us, the abandoned train station with overgrown plants on every side. It shows the nonexistence of humans which makes us believe that it is from an apocalyptic setting. In some ways, the picture is very pleasing to look at too, which is why it’s one of our favorites because it has two sides to it.
A really cute Minecraft Wallpaper as we head into the final five images. As all the Minecraft players know, the Enderman likes to hold a block as it teleports around the world. The image shows five Enderman, however, the one in the middle has hit the jackpot as he somehow ended up with a diamond block!
A tranquil image that presents a cozy cottage next to a symmetrically built wheat field. There is just something about nicely designed spaces that eventually become great Minecraft Backgrounds. We can also see a bunch of watermelon and pumpkin grown behind the wheat. Piling that all up, the image is a viable option as wallpaper.
The recent update, where the player can literally die from getting too cold, makes the snowy biome not so friendly anymore. The image shows a lone survivor trying to battle the cold by staying close to a torch while fishing for some fresh food to cook. The sunsetting light on the top portion of the picture and the reflection of the water are just awe-inspiring. We had to include this on our Best Minecraft Background list.
Even though the picture taken features a modded Minecraft, it’s still an amazing wallpaper. Similar to the last one, the character and the dog are cozying up to the campfire as they spend the night. The character has a cool-looking diamond sword and a shield resting against a log. If you’re looking for Minecraft dog wallpapers then this is a great option!
Last but not least is an image featuring seaweeds and kelp in Minecraft from the deep ocean. We left the image for last because it fits the narrative of fading away. Apart from the calming view of the deep ocean, the moonlight makes the image ten times better! It’s a great Minecraft ocean wallpaper to go for!
Well, that brings the end to our long list of Best Wallpaper for your PC. You can save this link as a bookmark and return here to cycle through different Minecraft Backgrounds. There are plenty of images to choose from which feature Enderman Wallpapers, Enderdragon Wallpapers, Steve and Alex Wallpapers, and many more!
