My recommendation would be to stay the 7 nights in the Bernese Oberland, either Mürren or take a look at Wengen as well. Wengen is a bit larger therefore has a wider selection of restaurants, food shops, etc and is a bit easier to get in and out of making it a good base for day trips in the region.
There are a couple of rules of thumb when traveling in Switzerland: 1. Two nights in a base = one day in that base. 2. Every time you change a base you lose a day with all of the hotel & transport logistics, packing/unpacking, and so on. Taking three bases in 9 nights means way too much moving around with not much time to actually experience the place.
There is more than enough to do from a Mürren or Wengen base to keep you very occupied for a week. We have been 19 times, usually never less than 2 weeks at a time. One year we stayed for three months and never ran out of things to do!
Teens will totally adore the area. In addition to hiking and biking there are all sorts of action sports like tobaggon runs, zip lines, trotti bikes, and on and on.
