No-one was injured but a small bus and a passenger car fell into the hole, next to the Odra river.
The fire brigade is checking surrounding buildings to see if they are at risk.
Mariusz Piasecki, a spokesman for the fire brigade in Wrocław, said: "Barges moored to the concrete quay damaged its structure and that probably caused the landslip.
"Firefighters are securing [the site] and checking it if endangers the surrounding buildings," he added.
