That could be true, i don't know the average number of thunderstorm days for the Netherlands, but the area between Rotterdam, Amsterdam up to Den Helder seem to get a lot of thunderstorms, so most probably more than us.

And compared to other parts of Germany, my town is one of the least thunderstorm prone cities, our average thunderstorm days per year is 17, you will find less days than that only in the far North like
Nordfriesland or the baltic coast from Flensburg down to Kiel.
I guess it has to do with our very flat terrain, and probably with the heading of our coastline (running north to south) too.

Are you kidding me? Is 20C a summer temperature? Since Bremerhaven lies on the Atlantic, I would expect constant sea breeze. And then what? The "feels like" temperature drops to 16C. Is that summer? Sun is too rare too. I would have expected at least more sun in summer. Winters are cold and gloomy, which is totally OK with me, though snow is not a guarantee.
E for its cloudy and cool weather year round. I prefer more distinct seasons. Munich has the best weather in Germany. Only the fact that it has a borderline between the continental climate (the one we have in the US) and the oceanic climate (that of Western Europe), gives its some unique weather patterns.
