German law dictates who pas the tax. In the case of an inheritance, it will be the heir (your son) that pays the inheritance tax. If nor the deceased aunt is domiciled in Germany, only ‘German-situ' properties transferred are subject to tax.

If the aunt's estate is all under Germany Estate law because she was still domiciled in Germany then he pays the tax to Germany.
