We report the first neutron-diffraction experiment on heavy rare-earth hexaboride DyB6. The results indicate that the structural phase transition occurs at 30 K and the antiferromagnetic order at TN = 26 K. Magnetic structure below TN is found to be triple-κ spin structure with the propagation vector κ = 〈1/4 - 1/4 1/2〉.
