Magnetic neutron and X-ray scattering experiments have been performed to analyze the magnetic structure of GdCu2. At 10K a noncollinear, spiral propagation with a propagation vector τ = (0.677 10) fits best to the experimental data. The symmetry of the exchange interaction needed for the formation of such a magnetic structure is discussed using a mean field model. The orthorhombic structure of GdCu2 can be viewed as a distorted hexagonal structure.
