To add something useful, is Dutch tax payable by the estate or the person receiving the inheritance? It's possible to be taxed by both countries.
Dutch tax always has to be payed by the receiving party, if and how much a heritage will be taxed depends on the relation to whom died, how much is inherited, where the deceased person lived, if (s)he left the Netherlands and how long ago this did happen., any treaties with the other involved countries and yes having to pay in two countries is an option.

I wrote it like that since I did not know every exact detail of Swiss inheritance law. Each country has it's own rules. I moved out of the Netherlands for a couple of years now for example, but if I would die now Dutch tax is still due (Even on my Swiss belongings, and even if I choose to handle the heritance under Swiss law) unless I changed nationality, this damn effect last for 10 yrs.
Would you have to change nationality, i.e. also renounce the Dutch one, so that only the Swiss rule counts?

For when it comes to what I leave behind I can choose if it will be be handled by Swiss or Dutch law aslong as I have a Dutch nationality and live in Switzerland, would I do away with my Dutch nationality and accept the Swiss one I can only have Swiss law.

Where tax has to be paid however is a whole different issue, the Netherlands in an attempt to avoid "heritage refugees" made up rulings. After leaving the Netherlands as a Dutch taxes in the Netherlands will be due for 10 years. After these 10 yrs it makes no diff if I kept the nationality or not.
