Witch huts are generated structures that have the ability to spawn witches.

Generation[edit]

Witch huts generate in swamp biomes. However, they do not generate in the swamp hills biome variant.

Structure[edit]

Witch huts consist of a small square "hut" made of spruce wood planks, with oak log "pillars" extending down to the ground. There is a small platform outside of the hut that could be an entrance; however, it is many blocks above the ground, and there are no stairs that go upwards to the hut. The roof of the witch hut is made up of spruce wood stairs and spruce wood planks.

The inside of a witch hut consists of an empty cauldron, a crafting table, and a flower pot with a red mushroom in it. However, in Bedrock Edition, the cauldron generates with a random potion filled inside of it.

Witch spawning[edit]

The 7x9x7 area inside and outside the witch hut, can only spawn witches. No other hostile or neutral mobs can spawn in this area, although passive mobs can. Additionally, one witch always spawns in each witch hut upon chunk generation. Before the 1.7.2 update, witch huts were the only place where witches had the ability to spawn.

Issues relating to "Witch hut" are maintained on the bug tracker. Report issues there.

Trivia[edit]

  • The "hut" part of a witch hut generates on or above the surface, while the wood "pillars" extend down until they reach solid ground. This means that if part of a witch hut is at sea level and another part is on top of deep ground, such as a ravine, the pillars on the deep-ground side will go all the way down to the ground.
  • It's possible for several witch huts to generate on top of one another.
