An Interesting Question Felix- You can spend days, months, year or spend your entire life in Delhi its such an interesting city.
Delhi is the largest metropolis of India and eighth largest of the World. If I talk about heritage Delhi consists of 3 World Heritage Sites,174 national protected monuments and over hundreds of state protected monuments and several unprotected and lesser known monuments.
I will list down few preferred places:
Art/Museum Lovers: National Gallery Of Modern Art is must. Delhi has an astounding collection of museums and galleries. The dazzling treasures housed within the National Museum together recall thousands of years of Indian history and creativity. Standing at the spot where Gandhi fell to an assassin’s bullet is a moving experience. And who would imagine that a museum of toilets could be quite so strangely engrossing (well, we guess it’s a subject that concerns all of us!). In addition, the city houses a number of impressive art galleries; none more so than the National Museum of Modern Art.
Religion and Sprituality Lovers: The religious places of Delhi reflect the secularism of the country. Religious destinations in this city are not limited to any particular faith or religion. Infact, there will be hardly any religion in Delhi which does not have its own place of worship. If there are numerous temples in the city, there are also a large number of mosques, churches as well as gurdwaras. Many places of worship in this city are believed to have mystical powers and have become famous for being a spiritual wonder.There are few places which are most visited by tourists.
Party Goers: There are loads of Pubs of Discotheques in Delhi and Delhi always has an interesting party crowd.
Below is the list of few famous party spots:
Depending on your interests and time, the visit I planned can always be customized.

If you want to get the feel of Old Delhi, do visit Chandni Chowk. This is probably the most famous and most talked about market of India.There are number of pplaces to visit there, number of eateries to eat(some of them are even century old) and infinite number of shops. There isn't anything which you can not get at Chandni Chowk.
Roaming in the crowded and narrow streets of chandni chowk will give you the feel of Old Delhi.
