When playing Minecraft, you may eventually decide to convert between versions. This can be for a variety of reasons, whether you plan to switch to a different version altogether, or plan to have more functionality through a version like Spigot for plugins. Normally, Bedrock and Java worlds are not compatible with each other, but using some tools, you can convert one to the other. Here at Apex Hosting, we will show you how you can easily convert a bedrock world to java.


  1. Download the Amulet world editor.
  2. Extract the .zip to a safe location for later.
  3. On Minecraft Java edition, create a new world.
  4. Before proceeding, we recommend creating a backup of your world.


Converting the World:

  1. Open the amulet_app.exe file to launch the program.
  2. Press “Open World”, select your Bedrock world as the source, then press “Convert” on the left.

  3. Press “Select Output World”, then choose the Java world you created.
    Select Output World
  4. When ready, press “Convert” to begin the process.

This will take any existing chunks from the Bedrock world, then translate them into Java. This means to find your transferred chunks, you may need to teleport to the coordinates from the original world.




With that, the Bedrock world’s chunks should now be converted over to the Java edition! All in-game blocks and entities should be transferred over, including chests. Because the player IDs may be different for the versions, inventory items may not be available. To prevent this, we recommend placing the items in a chest ahead of time before transferring them over. With this knowledge, you are now ready to convert a Bedrock world to a Java world!
