We report the neutron diffraction experiment on heavy rare-earth hexaboride DyB6. The results indicate that the structural phase transition occurs at 32 K, and the antiferromagnetic order at TN = 26 K. The propagation vector of the spin structure is found to be k = 〈1/4 1/4 1/2〉 and triple-K spin structure is proposed.
