As a Beijing local, I would suggest:

1 day: Tiananmen Square-Forbidden City-Jing Shan Park

2 day: Summer Palace and Beijing University (strongly recommend afternoon tea at The Aman at Summer Palace)

3 day: Great Wall Of China

4 day: Visit Hutong and Courtyards and National Museum of China/modern art 798 Art District (if you are into arts)

At night, I would suggest Sanlitun Bar Street and Nanluoguxiang for bar hopping

Don't be overwelmed, I am more of a casual traveller, the above is totally managable if you plan it right.

I am a member of Airbnb, so if you are also looking for a place to stay in Beijing, please also check out:

Must go to Tiananmen Square, Gugong (Forbidden City), Tiantan Park and the the BaDaLing, BDA 6th floor. Gugong is Chinese imperial castle, Tiantan is a magnificent building ritual. There are lots of bars in Sanlitun Bar Street and Houhai Lake.

Beijing is a full of historical and modern city, there are a lot of places where you can go, if you are a Chinese traditionalculture interested guy, then you can go to the Forbidden City Imperial PalaceMing Dynasty Tombs, the Summer Palace.

 Remember, to avoid the crowds go to these places, try not to choose a weekend or holiday. In addition, strongly recommend you must to eat Beijing snacks, all kinds of. There are many may not be to your taste, but the meaning of travel is to try, right? You can choose for a snack in the old city near the drum tower, where the mostauthentic! Finally, must go to the place is Beijing's Hutong, there you are, the feelings of Beijing people's daily life, and, welcome to my home!
