The best Minecraft seeds cater to a number of requirements, like strongholds near villages for speedrunning, beautiful landscapes for building, or multiple structures for looting. These seeds are codes that Minecraft uses to generate worlds for you, so even though new worlds are randomly generated, you can rebuild in the same ones over and over again.

Of course you can leave your world generation completely up to fate, but if you’re unlucky, you could spend hours looking for a Minecraft ancient city, desert temples, your favourite Minecraft biomes, and other desirable features. Over a decade on, Minecraft remains one of the best PC games around, so you don’t want to waste time on a bad seed, you’d much rather spawn straight into a stunning landscape with a Minecraft village to get the best experience possible. So, here are just a few of the best Minecraft seeds for January 2023. Keep reading to the bottom if you need some help entering these seeds in-game.
