Bridges in Minecraft
Bridges? Yes, bridges! Something so simple, can make a big difference and be a real eye-catcher.
Let's face it: bridges in Minecraft don't necessarily look impressive next to undead mobs; huge, mysterious woodland mansions or battles against a flying dragon. Still, you shouldn't underestimate them! They can really make your life easier in your square world and especially aesthetically they are high on the list of must-haves! We'll prove to you why!
That’s Why Bridges in Minecraft Are Useful
The purpose of a Minecraft bridge is actually pretty easy to see: You can cross great distances. It doesn't even have to be across water. Bridges can be located anywhere you need a path without having to fight through valleys, water or infinite depths. With a few extra steps, your bridge can even just stand in the air without being connected to solid ground at either end. Or it can stop in the air only at one end. It looks quite mysterious! Well, maybe that doesn't have much use, but Minecraft fortunately doesn't always have to be logical. Appropriately, here's a tutorial for your own Minecraft Frog Army.
The interesting part about Minecraft bridges? There are no rules! You can decide on the size, appearance and even material yourself! Five wooden blocks lined up across a river may not look that impressive, but in principle that's a Minecraft bridge too! Everyone starts small. There are no limits to your imagination!
The Coolest Minecraft Bridge Ideas
As with all building projects in Minecraft, it is a blessing and a curse that you can decide freely. You have all the options open to you for your Minecraft bridge, but sometimes that can seem quite overwhelming. Where do you start? What fits with your house ideas that might be implemented later? What do I need for the bridge? Grab some friends and decide together whether you want to build a Minecraft bridge in medieval or asian style, for example. It's more fun together in multiplayer anyway! Or maybe you want to recreate one of the real bridges of our world? If you still need inspiration, here are 3 cool ideas!
Jump Through Time: Medieval Minecraft bridge
One great thing about Minecraft is clearly that you can build huge structures. So why should you stop at houses? If you already have a castle, you should urgently add to it a long bridge over an adjacent lake! High stone arches, whose base you can't see in the water, look fascinating! Or you have a stream of water inside your castle, then maybe a small wooden bridge will be enough to simplify life in the fortress. Just adapt your material to your home! You can, of course, build a drawbridge to your entrance that extends out of a wall and across the moat! Just grab some sticky blocks, some redstone, and test it out. Don't forget: In case of emergency, there's always a tutorial online for everything.

The Fantasy Hit: Aesthetic Minecraft Bridge
Let's move away from the big majestic structures of your empire. How about cute little wooden bridges in forests that capture the aura of a fantasy world? All you need is a bit of wood. Finish your cute Minecraft bridge with vines and some natural or shimmering lights and it will look like little fairies are about to float around the corner. Try glow berries! Add a small overgrown roof to the bridge and let the vines grow on it. If the Minecraft bridge looks like a passageway in the jungle, there's something to it, isn't there? What if it doesn't cross water at all, but only the ground? That can seem strange, or even mystical, because why build a bridge without water? Trust us, in the dark these bridges look beautiful and add the final touch to your fantasy forest!
Up in the Sky: Minecraft Rope Bridge
If you're looking for a bit of a challenge, you should venture into the skies! Build your base on the top of a mountain and connect yourself to other mountains in the range. Or cross canyons without falling to your death by building a Minecraft rope bridge! Either highly stable and with railings or only something for the really brave! Use wooden steps, chains and a few decorative vines and everyone will think twice about crossing it because you can literally hear the wind and almost see the swaying.

You'll see, no sooner have you started and built your first bridge, you won't want to miss it thanks to the look alone. Soon Minecraft will be teeming with bridges! And if you still want to see for yourself, you can do it without any problems on a Minecraft server from G-Portal! Have fun!
